DCE RPC Daemon

Can some one please explain why I am getting this error in my /etc/rc.log file shortly after booting up:

Starting the DCE RPC Daemon
/opt/dce/sbin/rpcd
"/sbin/rc2.d/S590Rpcd start" Failed.

Regards

Re: DCE RPC Daemon

Did you get any error if you started it manually ?
# /opt/dce/bin/rpcd

Also look at /var/opt/dce/svc. There are a few log files in there. Check for the latest timestamp and look at the content of those file/files for any additional error message. Post 'em here.

Re: DCE RPC Daemon

If you have not already done it these are a couple of possible causes that I can think of. It all depends on what kind of error you get from running rpcd by hand.
1) Permission (/var/opt/dce/dced) must be 755 (root:bin)
2) LAN card problem.
# lanscan
# ifconfig lan0
===> The hrw state and flag of your card must be "UP".
3) Port 135 already being used by other process. Run this ..
# netstat -an|grep 135
If you get something back, check which process is using that port ..
# cd /opt/dcelocal/var/rpc/local
# grep 135 */srvr_socks
==> The first field is the PID of that process.
