Re: Midaemon process fails to start


I would look at what happened lately to the system. Any errors or recent changes:

* Disk problem
* Files deleted in shared library
* Check syslog.log for recent errors.

Error 2 suggests a needed file is not there.

Check that it is there or not.

If not, reinstall the depot containing the missing file or copy it from a working HP-UX system.
