DHCP problem?

Hello all.

I am a total novice on HPUX so please excuse any mistakes or silly questions. I work on a D220/HPUX 10.20 server with A4450A graphics card. When the system boots up, I see the following messages:

/sbin/rc[61]: csh: not found.
/sbin/auto_parms, checking network for DHCP server (see /etc/auto_parms.log)

After that, the system seems totally stuck and does nothing. I interrupt the boot-up process and set again the values manually
(ifconfig lan0 [myipaddress]
but I cannot ping anything beyond my subnet.
The system does not recognize the specified subnet mask ( and uses instead.

This probably prevents me from logging on to CDE (CDE loading also seems to hang at some point)

Is this due to DHCP misconfiguration? Does anybody have a clue?

Re: DHCP problem?

You probably got DHCP enabled, try to disable it ..
The file is /etc/rc.config.d/netconf and change to this ..


the "0" disables it.

Reboot the system afterwards.

Hi Nikos


diable DHCP_ENABLE[0]=0

and stop and restart the net by

/sbin/init.d/net stop
/sbin/init.d/net start .

(610 in /etc/rc is line no inthat file which produces this error which relates to autoparms
