Re: Init command massege

There are many causes which could trigger this error. Essentially, you have a command in inittab that is set to "respawn" and there is a problem. I've even seen a simple getty do that on a very long open serial cable in a noisy environment. Issue a dmesg command and examine /var/adm/syslog/syslog.log for more clues.



www.docs.hp.com is a good starting place.
If it ain't broke, I can fix that.

Raees,

I give the book HP-UX CSA: Study Guide and Desk Reference (Rafeeq Ur Rehman) to the new students I hire. (I've got one starting tomorrow, he's getting the book.) It gets them moving in the right direction. You might look at it to get you going.

Hope it helps
