pfsd.rpc?

I did the following:

[/usr/sbin] # pfs_mountd &
[1] 3633
[/usr/sbin] # pfsd 4 &
[2] 3635
[/usr/sbin] # ps -ef | grep pfs
root 3637 3428 2 15:20:13 pts/tc 0:00 grep pfs
root 3635 3428 0 15:20:05 pts/tc 0:00 pfsd 4
root 3633 3428 0 15:19:50 pts/tc 0:00 pfs_mountd
root 3634 3633 0 15:19:50 pts/tc 0:00 pfs_mountd.rpc

How come I don't find pfsd.rpc?
Thanks in advance.

Re: pfsd.rpc?

Hi,

depending on your shell (and the environment variable $ENV) starting "pfs_mountd" and "pfsd" in the background might actually freeze them - check with "ps -el|grep pfs" and look for the second column, if it showa a "T" then the processes are frozen (they don't get CPU time) and you have to move them to the foreground, again...

Second, why would you want 4 "pfsd" daemons? From your other questions I gather you are about to mount Oracle-CD-ROMs, but if it is only one CD-ROM at a time, then multiple "pfsd" are not useful...

Just my $0.02,
Wodisch

PS: You might want to get the book from Marty Poniatowsky about HP-UX and the "DBA Handbook" from Kevin Loney about Oracle.

Hi,

Please try running the command with nohup

#nohup /usr/sbin/pfsd 4 &
#nohup /usr/sbin/pfs_mountd &

Re: pfsd.rpc?

For whatever it's worth, I regularly background pfs_mountd and pfsd (C shell -- no nohup) and have never had issues (other than needing to stop them in a very specific order). I don't run 4 pfsds, though.
