getty: cannot open

Hi All,

I can see so many error messages in /var/adm/syslog/syslog.log
that are generating frequently. Can anybody let me know what they are how to stop these.

syslog: getty: cannot open "tty0p2". errno: 6
syslog: getty: cannot open "tty0p4". errno: 6
syslog: getty: cannot open "tty0p5". errno: 6
and so on.

Re: getty: cannot open

You have getty's configured on various serial ports, but the ports are not there.

MUX card removed?

Hope this helps!
