find out what sent console message.

Is there an easy way to find out what process is sending an error to my console?

Currently it's Legato Storage Manager, loaded in error by a dba, complaining that a tape drive doesn't exist ( it doesn't)
I've looked in the rc directories, inittab and syslog, and scanned the processes but nothing is jumping out at me as Legato.

Re: find out what sent console message.

Why not check if the tape drive is there.

ioscan -fnk

or

ioscan -fnC tape

The complaint could be do to a momentary power loss or hardware problem.

dmesg

Re: find out what sent console message.

the tape drive doesn't exist, it must have been a default entry from the installation.
I just want to find the Legato Process / daemon / software and remove it.

It doesn't show up in swlist.

Check to see if Legato is running on the server.
ps -ef | grep nsr

If so, stop Legato

/sbin/init.d/networker stop

The name of the process and software for legato is networker. You can look for the "networker" process..

Re: find out what sent console message.

Hi,

If this is/was a Legato server then the process(es) should look like

/opt/networker/bin/nsrexecd

And they can be stopped with

/sbin/init.d/networker stop

If /sbin/init.d/networker doesn't exist then try

/opt/networker/bin/nsr_shutdown -a -q &

else you'll have to kill the process(es)

HTH,
Jeff

So networker is the culprit, color it gone. Thanks.
