cimservermain syslog error

Hello all,

 

I am getting the following error message repeated every 30 seconds in my syslog.log

 

cimserver[18449]: The cimservermain user "cimsrvr" does not exist.

cimserver[18426]: exited with status of 1

 

This is on:  HPUX11i-VSE-OE                B.11.31.1109

 

We have one other server running the same release in the same configuration that does not have these errors in the syslog.  The cimserver processes do not start on this server either.  If I try to start cimserver from command line, I get the same error message as is in the syslog.

 

# cimserver
/opt/wbem/lbin/cimserver: The cimservermain user "cimsrvr" does not exist.

 

 

 

Additionally, we have a 11.23 server that has the cimserver processes up and running, but does not have a cimsrvr user in the passwd file.

 

 

 

Can someone please help me understand why the 11.23 server has the cimserver processes running, but does not have the cimsrvr user in the passwd file, and what I can do to get the processes started on my 11.31 server.

 

Thank you much for your continued help.

use cimprovider -ls to verify that all installed providers are still registered.

Good Luck..

Re: cimservermain syslog error

Hello Uday,

 

When I run this on the 11.31 server I get the following error.

 

PGC00601: The CIM server may not be running.

 

# ps -aef | grep cim
    root  3279     1  0  Mar 28  ?         0:01 /opt/wbem/lbin/cimserverd
    root 26316 15899  0 13:33:04 pts/0     0:00 grep cim

 

On the 11.23 server it displays status of OK for all modules except one that is STOPPED.

 

Thanks!

Re: cimservermain syslog error

Hi,

 

we have faced the same issue and the same has been rectified after creating user named "cimsvr"

 

#useradd cimsvr

 

then we have reconfigured the WBEMSvc on the server by swconfig command, observed the issue has been addressed.

 

#swconfig -p -x mount_all_filesystems=false -x reconfigure=true WBEMServices
#swconfig -x mount_all_filesystems=false -x reconfigure=true WBEMServices
