Shalom again, Sentil.

1)Why the values shown in SAM and Sysdef differs? how to resolve?

When you use SAM, sysdef is modified automatically. Based on your current skill level, go with sam.

2)Will the following commands resolve the issue?

# cd /dev
# insf -n200 -dpty0
# insf -n200 -dpty1
# insf -d pts -s 200 -e

None of the above. system must be rebooted to recognize new terminal/pseudo terminal limit.

3)Do I need to restart the server after execting above commands to take effect?

Yes, restart after this kernel change. Not sure about 11.31, but definitely a high possibility.

4)I am in the position of not restarting the server to resolve the issue, So is there any way to resolve the issue with out restart?

Change the kernel parameters with sam or by hand, compile a new kernel and put it into place, then reboot. SAM will handle reboot for you.

>/dev/pty and /dev/tty are owned by bin.
>#ll -d /dev/pty
>drwxr-xr-x 2 bin bin 8192 Feb 3 2005 /dev/pty

Oops, you have to look in /dev/pty/.

Most of your hung -sh have "?" for the tty.
But there a few with:
medcpx 1640 1 0 Apr 28 pts/49 0:17 -sh

So look in /dev/pts/.

I don't know if this will work:
ll -d /dev/pty?* /dev/tty?*

Try man 7 pty, tty, pts, ptm
