inq command not working on some HP-UX servers

I have several servers running 11.31.

 

Some of my servers allow me to run /usr/sbin/inq which is a standalone binary.  (trust me, its there)

 

I have some servers it runs fine on and others, it won't run....  It just sites there.

 

Any ideas?

 

[/usr/sbin] root@hostname #inq

 

 

on other servers it works fine.

[/root] root@hostname2 #inq

Server it doesn't work on: 

 

ldd inq.HPUXIA64

inq.HPUXIA64:
        libpthread.so.1 =>      /usr/lib/hpux64/libpthread.so.1
        libdl.so.1 =>   /usr/lib/hpux64/libdl.so.1
        libm.so.1 =>    /usr/lib/hpux64/libm.so.1
        librpcsvc.so.1 =>       /usr/lib/hpux64/librpcsvc.so.1
        libc.so.1 =>    /usr/lib/hpux64/libc.so.1
        libnsl.so.1 =>  /usr/lib/hpux64/libnsl.so.1

Looks like you have different versions of this EMC tool.

What does "what /usr/sbin/inq" show for both?

Can you find it with the following?

swlist -l file | grep sbin/inq

If you have access to powerlink.emc.com (EMC's repository) you can go download the latest and greatest version of INQ yourself. If you dont have access, you can ask one of your Storage Admins to download it for you. I had similar issue and got it resolved. There are a lot of different versions of INQ for each flavor of UNIX out there - not to forget the 32bit and 64 bit versions.
