using spray RPC: Program not registered

Hi

I am using /usr/sbin/spray command to  check if packets are being dropped from one hp-ux server to the other, but I am getting the following error:

spray: cannot clnt_create 10.1.20.240:netpath: RPC: Program not registered

I have checked and found an article that says I need to uncomment lines related to spray on file /etc/inetd.conf and refresh inet, so I did, but unfortunately nothing changed.

Can you help

   How, exactly?  As usual, showing actual commands with their actual
output can be more helpful than vague descriptions or interpretations.

   Why, exactly?  Is there some actual problem which you are trying to
solve?

   Great, but its location is a secret?

> [...] that says I need to uncomment lines related to spray on file
> /etc/inetd.conf and refresh inet, so I did, [...]

   What, exactly, did you do where, exactly?  (I assume that there could
be two systems involved here.)

> Can you help[?]

   I know nothing about "spray", except what I found here:

http://h20566.www2.hpe.com/hpsc/doc/public/display?docId=emr_na-c02270489&lang=en-us&cc=us
http://h20564.www2.hpe.com/hpsc/doc/public/display?docId=c02264864&lang=en-us&cc=us

but that suggests that specifying a "-t <nettype>" option on the "spray"
command might be useful.  (What's in your "/etc/netconfig" file?)  But
whether "spray" will do anything to help with your actual problem
(whatever that might be) is another question.

Re: using spray RPC: Program not registered

I am using spray like this:

spray -c 100 -d 20 -l 2048 10.1.20.240
spray: cannot clnt_create 10.1.20.240:netpath: RPC: Program not registered

The purpose of running this command is to check if from one server to another there is packets being dropped, because there is intermittent loss of connectivity from one server (aplication) to the other (database server). The error is:

Start BCH cleanup ...
UnRegister BCH Instance ...
SQL error in file 'BCHInstance.pc':

SQL return code       : -3114

   Ok.  I still know nothing, but it appears that "RPC: Program not
registered" is what you get when the appropriate daemon is not running
(and, hence, not registered); in this case, rpc.sprayd.  Around here:

dyi# spray -c 100 -d 20 -l 2048 localhost
spray: cannot clnt_create localhost:netpath: RPC: Program not registered

dyi# /usr/lib/netsvc/spray/rpc.sprayd

dyi# spray -c 100 -d 20 -l 2048 localhost
sending 100 packets of length 2048 to localhost ...
no packets dropped by localhost
12283 packets/sec, 25156614 bytes/sec

   So, you might try that on your target system.  Possibly interesting:

dyi# ps -ex | grep spray
12350 ? 0:00 /usr/lib/netsvc/spray/rpc.sprayd

dyi# rpcinfo | grep spray
     100012 1 udp 0.0.0.0.197.246 sprayd superuser
     100012 1 tcp 0.0.0.0.210.221 sprayd superuser
     100012 1 ticlts \000\000\020\372 sprayd superuser
     100012 1 ticotsord \000\000\020\375 sprayd superuser
     100012 1 ticots \000\000\021\000 sprayd superuser

(Compare results before and after starting rpc.sprayd.)

   Whether this will tell you anything about your ORA-03114 error is
another question, of course.

   I also know nothing about Oracle, but from what I've read in the past
few minutes, that may be one possible cause of an ORA-03114 error, but
it's not the only one (and it may not be the most likely one).

   Ok.  Did you start rpc.sprayd on the system at 10.1.20.240?

      man rpcinfo
      rpcinfo -p 10.1.20.240

   This stuff isn't magic.  I know nothing, but, as I read it, "spray"
on one (source) system talks to rpc.sprayd on the other (target) system.
If that's true, then rpc.sprayd must be registered and running on the
other (target) system.  (I did my test to "localhost", so my target
system was the same as my source system, so it was easy for me to start
rpc.sprayd on my target system.  You'll need to work a little harder.)
