pfsmount: devicename on mountpoint : NO PFSD'S AVAILABLE

Hi all,

I have the following problem:

# echo "/dev/dsk/c3t2d0 /SD_CDROM pfs-rrip xlat=unix 0">/etc/pfs_fstab
# nohup /usr/sbin/pfs_mountd&
# nohup /usr/sbin/pfsd&
# /usr/sbin/pfs_mount /SD_CDROM

this gives me the following output:

pfsmount: /dev/dsk/c3t2d0 on /SD_CDROM : NO PFSD'S AVAILABLE
pfsmount: giving up on /SD_CDROM

Can someone help me?
ps:
/SD_CDROM is not used
i tried the manual command with the raw device file.
It just would not work.

Thanks in advance

Gideon

Hi,

Do you have the pfsd 's running?. Kill them all and start them again. Make sure they are running before pfs_mount.

Also, enable NFS and see if it helps.

Hi,

Once you killed the pfs process

Follow these steps sequentially.

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

/usr/sbin/pfs_mount -t rrip -x unix /dev/dsk/devicename /cdrom

Hi again,

Do you have pfsd.rpc and pfs_mountd.rpc running ? Checkk the output of rpcinfo -p.

Also there are cumulative patches for PFS in 10.20 :

Re: pfsmount: devicename on mountpoint : NO PFSD'S AVAILABLE

Hi,

Here is the information u asked:

PROBLEM
I get the following messages when I use pfs to mount a CD:

pfs_mountd.rpc: No servers chosen
pfs_mount: /dev/dsk/cxtxdx on /cdrom: No PFSD's available
pfs_mount: giving up on /cdrom

...

/usr/sbin/pfsd: pfsd.rpc (pid = 8119) not responding, retrying...
/usr/sbin/pfsd: /usr/sbin/pfsd: pfsd.rpc (pid = 8119) not responding,
retrying...

Why am I getting these errors?


CONFIGURATION
Operating System - HP-UX
Subsystem - System Administration

RESOLUTION
You are getting the errors because you do not have a local X.25
interface.

To resolve the errors:

1. Add a local X.25 route:

route add host xx.xx.xx.x1 127.0.0.1

Note: xx.xx.xx.x1 is the IP address for the X.25 interface.

2. ping the X.25 interface:

ping xx.xx.xx.x1

3. Resume the PFS operation.


HTH,
Shiju

Hi,

Check if the hostname and ip for your system are resolved properly. Do a nslookup and check for the same,

nslookup
> Server_name
> Server_ip
> exit

Hope this helps.

Re: pfsmount: devicename on mountpoint : NO PFSD'S AVAILABLE

Thanks again,

The problem was solved. The deamon was not running properly. Once i put the test system on the network and restarted the deamons i was able to pfs_mount the cdrom.

Re: pfsmount: devicename on mountpoint : NO PFSD'S AVAILABLE

I have a standalone system, and I have the same
problem of NO PFSD'S AVAILABLE.
Restarting pfs_mountd and pfsd has not helped.

Am I to understand correctly that the system MUST be on
a network AND have NFS running for pfs_mount to work?

Thanks

Hi,

Your systemen does not have to be on the network , but tcp/ip ( localhost, gethostbyname ) should be configured correct.
