Re: create socket file

Hi,

You could try running a verify and fix on /dev using dsfgmr

# dsfmgr -V -F -v

Look at the man page for dsfmgr for more information...

Hope this helps,

Regards,

Rob

Re: create socket file

The /dev/binlogdmb is created when you start the binlog service:

/sbin/init.d/binlog start

The /dev/log is created when you start the syslog service:

/sbin/init.d/syslog start

You don't need to create them manually.
Por que hacerlo dificil si es posible hacerlo facil? - Why do it the hard way, when you can do it the easy way?
