tru64 v5.1 : problem with rsh

Hi all,
i have an AlphaStation with tru64 V5.1 installed (host_name) and a problem with rsh.I type from another machine:
#rsh host_name
and the system answers to me with the message:
Too many users logged on already.
Try again later.
rlogin: connection closed.

But the output of "w" is :
15:29 up 1 day, 5:06, 1 users, load average: 0.05, 0.03, 0.02
User tty from login@ idle JCPU PCPU what
root console 10:26 29:01 /usr/sbin/getty console console vt100

I don't have the problem if i try to type :
#rsh host_name -l root

Thanks,
Francesco

Re: tru64 v5.1 : problem with rsh

I've see that message when the OSF-BASE license hasn't been loaded. Check your licenses with '# lmf list full' and make sure they're there and they haven't expired.

Re: tru64 v5.1 : problem with rsh

Tho output of the command "lmf list full" is

host_name> lmf list full
Product Name: OSF-USR
Producer: DEC

Authorization Number: UNIX-SERVER-IMPLICIT-USER
Number of units: 400
Version:

The section License Status is active.This output is normal?
Thanks, Francesco.

Re: tru64 v5.1 : problem with rsh

This looks like a new install. Is it?

With the system you should have gotten License PAKs for OSF-BASE, OSF-USR, & OSF-SVR. In /var/adm/messages are there any entries about missing licenses?

To add licenses run /usr/bin/X11/dxlicenses

Re: tru64 v5.1 : problem with rsh

I have seen in /var/adm/messages and there are same string as :
May 25 15:05:07 krahs vmunix: Can't find an OSF-BASE, UNIX-WORKSTATION, or UNIX-SERVER license PAK

I must try this information...i believe and then with /usr/bin/X11/dxlicenses enter the number of authorization code?

Re: tru64 v5.1 : problem with rsh

Each License PAK comes on one sheet of paper. You'll have to enter all the information on it:

Issuer
Authorization Number
Product Name
Producer
Number of Units
etc.

The last item is the Checksum. That'll verify that you entered all the data correctly.

Re: tru64 v5.1 : problem with rsh

this question was asked for a while, please use the "search" function next time before posting a question.

Otherwise quality of the forum will be lowered by time.

Hope the name "host_name" was only a sample due to the fact, that "_" are not RFC compliant for hostnames. This "bad" idea of using "_" comes from PC freaks not knowing the difference between netbios names and real hostnames.

Re: tru64 v5.1 : problem with rsh

#lmf list
Product Status Users: Total Active
OSF-USR active 4 0

#lmf reset
The output is empty

Re: tru64 v5.1 : problem with rsh

you can login with 4 different users thats the reason why root works.

So if a process with non root is running 1 license will be removed from the available licenses.

Re: tru64 v5.1 : problem with rsh

Re: tru64 v5.1 : problem with rsh

Hi,

that's allmost nothing, what you have.
I would recommend ro get
OSF-BASE
OSF-SVR
OSF-USR
licenses as a good basis for your machine.

greetings,

Re: tru64 v5.1 : problem with rsh

yes because the system have started processes with different users (non-root).
So limit was reached!

Francesco,

I can vaguely remember, that I could work only with root without proper licenses.

Re: tru64 v5.1 : problem with rsh

I believe you have to have the appropriate no. of OSF-BASE licenses to get rid of the 'Too many users' error. We once upgraded a 4100 from dual CPU to quad CPU and started getting that error message. I forgot to add the 2 OSF-BASE licenses that came with the new CPUs.

Re: tru64 v5.1 : problem with rsh

Francesco,

user means "non-root", so please check all processes which do not use root as owner.

Re: tru64 v5.1 : problem with rsh

In the output of #ps -ef there isn't user processes,therefor there only root processes.

Re: tru64 v5.1 : problem with rsh

the lmf list output shows only the osfusr licence?

If so please install also the base etc. as suggest by michael.
