Errors

Two questions:

1) Why would I get the error /dev/pts/tb: file table overflow when attempting to login to my unix machine?

2) If I am at the console and enter ^b to get to the GSP prompt, what do I do in there and how do I get out?

Can you tell I'm not an HP guy?

Re: Errors

Hi,

to your second question:
GSP mode is for configuring offline the system such as setting boot path, setting time ...
To get a list of commands type HE
To go back to console mode type CO

Regards

Andrew

Re: Errors

Question 1:

Check your .sh_history file in the home directory to see if it has the correct permissions (-rw-------) and is owned by the user.

Question 2:

At the prompt, type 'co' then [Enter] to return to the console.

Hope this helps.

Re: Errors

Hi,

to your first question:
This message indicates that the kernel parameter nfile is too small.
You can increase this parameter with SAM:
sam -> Kernel Configuration -> Configurable Parameters
You get a list of all kernel parameters.
Select the 'maxusers' line with a double click. You get a window where you can see the value (ie. 32)
Set this value higher (ie. double value).
After changing kernel parameters the system has to reboot with new builded kernel.
By leaving the windows you will be asked for this by sam.

Regards
