I'm not sure what these mean:

Starting Control Daemon
Output from "/sbin/rc3.d/S99z0OVCtrl start":
(ctrl-12) Communication error when executing 'Start' method.
 (xpl-117) Timeout occurred while waiting for data.
EXIT CODE: 64

 

You could look into sbin/rc3.d/S99z0OVCtrl to see what's being executed.  Is there another machine it's trying to contact?

i think because before installing the OS was some filesystem shared to other machine but I stop that from the client system.

 

Thanks

That wouldn't show a hang on S99z0OVCtrl.

 

What does "/sbin/rc3.d/S99z0OVCtrl status" show?

Ok, it didn't hang but lots of things are stopped.

Try:  /sbin/rc3.d/S99z0OVCtrl start

The "Control Daemon" is part of the HP OpenView Operations (= OVO for short) product family. Looks like this server has OVO monitoring agents installed.

 

Is this system supposed to be monitored via some OVO server? If yes, the OVO server should have been alerting you that the monitoring agent is not working on this host.

 

If you've moved to some other monitoring system, someone might have forgotten to uninstall the agents.

Re: Starting Control Daemon Fail

The output of your "/sbin/rc3.d/S99z0OVCtrl status" command definitely looks like you have an OVO agent installed but maybe not properly configured.

 

The OVO Agent might have been embedded in the DataCenter OE, so that it installs by default unless you unselect it when starting the installation, as a way for HP to make it easier to use OVO for monitoring HP-UX systems.

 

As the OS installation procedure cannot know the configuration of your OVO server (if you have one), the agent would be trying to autoconfigure itself... but obviously failing if you don't have an OVO server.

 

If you don't use the OVO agent, you might want to disable it, so it won't cause useless error messages in your system startup. If I recall correctly, the OVO agent was controlled by /etc/rc.config.d/OpC or a similarly-named file. The should have a variable that is currently set to 1; change it to 0 to stop the agent from starting.

 

You might also want to swremove the agent if you don't have any use for it; if you do that, remember the name of the software item. Next time you reinstall HP-UX, make sure that item is not selected for installation unless you really want it.
