ninstall Error

Hi All
I got one 9000/715/E machine, and it's OS is 10.20. when i try to execute /usr/adm/netdist/netdaemon.dy
to update the aliases database file it's giving the following error

like "ninstall: 17:57:03 ERROR ninstall/tcp is not in the services database"

I have made an entry in the /etc/services as "ninstall 2150/tcp"

Re: ninstall Error

Hi

From readme

The following entry should be in your /etc/services file:

ninstall 2150/tcp

You should also have an entry in your /var/adm/inetd.sec file like this:

ninstall allow 15


Do you have both of these

Re: ninstall Error

In /var/adm/inetd.sec there is no entry like
ninstall allow 15. So i made an entry and then
inetd stop / start. But still it's giving the same error.

Anything aprt from this.

Re: ninstall Error

Hi,

Perform further troubleshooting from the server itself:

1) Verify that the connection works:

# telnet localhost 2150

If the connection gets established, then the service is running at service TCP port 2150.

2) Test /etc/services:

# telnet localhost ninstall

If the connection gets connected, then your /etc/services is working properly in the translation of ninstall to service port 2150.

If the connection does not get connected, then either there is a typo in /etc/services or it is using an entirely different service database (though unlikely).

Hope this helps. Regards.
