Re: consol problem

Hi,

You must reboot in single-user mode and edit your /etc/inittab file.

See doc ID UXDNKBRC00000918 for instructions about booting in single-user mode...

Solution

Re: consol problem

Ok,

Here it is the part that matters to you:

1) If the system cannot be interrupted due to this error state, forcibly
reboot it by cycling power on the CPU or executing a RS from the
CM> or SP> prompt. Watch the boot messages and interrupt the
autoboot sequence to perform an attended boot.

2) Boot from the primary boot path and interact with the
ISL.
On earlier 700's, this requires:
a) pressing the "escape" key to interrupt autoboot
b) type "boot pri isl"

On later 700's and all 800's, interrupt the autoboot by pressing any
key when the 10 second pause appears after the system displays the
CONSOLE path, and PRIMARY and ALTERNATE boot paths.

3) At the ISL> prompt type:

ISL> hpux -is

This will boot the system up in single-user mode. A shell prompt
should eventually appear.

4) (Optional) Type "/etc/bcheckrc" (linked to /sbin) to activate
volume groups and check all file systems.

If you are left with a "inbcheckrc" prompt, determine which file
systems need to be manually fsck'd and do so.

a) # mount -a <--- this reports if/which file systems need fsck
b) # fsck /dev/vgXX/lvolYY <-- this is the usual fsck command

Once completed, all file systems should be mounted.

5) Mount /usr, /var and /tmp to access commands and 'vi'.

6) Compare the last successful reboot date with files modifed
afterwards:
# tail -1 /etc/shutdownlog # check the date/time

Check to see if files were modified after that date:
# ll -tr /etc/rc.config.d | tail -10
# ll -tr /sbin/init.d | tail -10
# ll /etc/inittab

Example:
# tail -1 /etc/shutdownlog
12:49 Sat Jan 3, 2002. Reboot: (by eon!root)

# ll -tr /etc/rc.config.d | tail -10
--(snip)--
-r-xr--r-- 1 bin bin 731 Nov 13 16:00 cmcluster
-r--r--r-- 1 bin bin 4408 Jan 4 14:08 netconf
In this example, the netconf file is a candidate for error

Review file changes and correct as needed. Generic versions are
located in /usr/newconfig/ under etc and rc.config.d. The
/sbin/ commands have no duplicates.

Re: consol problem

I didn't understood your last post? Did you reach step 5) (Mount /usr, /var and /tmp)??

Is this a Linux server???

Re: consol problem

Hi,

The idea is to find what has changed since the last time the server booted well...

Why can't you change /etc/inittab?

Can you run and post the results of the following commands:

#tail -1 /etc/shutdownlog
# ll -tr /etc/rc.config.d | tail -10
# ll -tr /sbin/init.d | tail -10
# ll /etc/inittab

Re: consol problem

1.Any kernel change was made ?

2.Have you changed permission of /usr/lib ,/sbin or /usr/lib/bin.

3.what is the output of sar -v 1 11.( to check whether maxuprc/nproc values exceeds the current kernel parameters)

4.give cat /etc/rclog|grep ERROR

Good Luck
