booting so long due to some error message

Hi

11.23

I got the error message during booting like
"bind() failed: No such file or directory".
This message appears so many times repeately
and after booting that message was stoped.

Where this message come from?

I posted console log;

# Partition state Activity
- --------------- --------
0 OS heartbeat: 159 Logs

# Cell state Activity
- ---------- --------
0 Cell has joined partition 394 Logs
1 Cell has joined partition 389 Logs
2 Cell has joined partition 249 Logs
3 Cell has joined partition 247 Logs

Re: booting so long due to some error message

You should investigate which startup script is sending this - check the rc.log file!

Hope this helps!

Torsten.

Re: booting so long due to some error message

Looks like the remains of some old or attempted installation of DNS services. An any case, as Torsten says, please review your /etc /rc.log file.

Re: booting so long due to some error message

Jose,

The error message is from the bind() system call, not from the Berkeley Internet Name Daemon (BIND).

man 2 bind

So it still might be from named, but to be honest could be from any network daemon.

As Torsten said, the original poster needs to look at /etc/rc.log and see after which startup script the messages started appearing... although the fact they seem to be appearing *before* the first startup script (Configure system crash dumps), and that they are being written to the console suggests the error may be being generated by something prior to the rc script... I would look at 2 things:

1. Anything started out of /etc/inittab it would be interesting to see the output of "diff /usr/newconfig/etc/inittab /etc/inittab" - there will certainly be some differences, but it would help us home in on any "Non-standard" entries.

2. A script left in /etc/rc.config.d/ by accident which is causing this - simply running "sh /etc/rc.config" will tell us if there is a problem there - it should just return nothing, as all the files in /etc/rc.config.d/ should just be setting environment variables and nothing more.

Re: booting so long due to some error message

I have seen wrong startup scripts where a script is trying to start as the very first one (while it was intended to start much later in init 3), trying to get network, but network is not yet startet - hence such errors.

I expect something similar here.

Hope this helps!
Regards
Torsten.

Re: booting so long due to some error message

Torsten,

Possibly, but in that case would we not expect to see the first "bind() failed: No such file or directory" message _after_ /sbin/rc had written out the "HP-UX Start-up in progress" message?

Re: booting so long due to some error message

Maybe, but there are many lines missing between the start of boot and the first line pasted here ...
it starts before the

Suggestion:

capture the *complete* boot!

Hope this helps!

Re: booting so long due to some error message

Hello,
If you are susspecting DNS / DNS related scripts ,not a bad idea to reboot server without LAN connectivity and check

Recheck the rc scripts
