Server not booting


We have rx6600, running 11.23. System was fine until we tried to configre it as ntp client.
now system is not booting. it is getting with error message
/sbin/rc[75]: ntp.bot.go.tz: is not an identifier
rebooted the server in single user mode, and removed the entries

server minpoll 6 prefer
server ntp.bot.go.tz version 3 prefer
export NTPDATE_SERVER="ntp.bot.go.tz"
export XNTPD=1
export XNTPD_ARGS=

server is still not booting...

Re: Server not booting


Did you ever try to restart ntp before reboot:

ps -ef | grep -i xntpd

Re: Server not booting

>/sbin/rc[75]: ntp.bot.go.tz: is not an identifier

This typically occurs if you have left a junk file in /etc/rc.config.d/ where /etc/rc.config will source it.

Re: Server not booting

Dennis was right, there was a junk file in /etc/rc.config.d/
