Re: pdntfs[1596943]: unable to RPC register tcp.

please try

rpcinfo -p

to check if rpc is still running. If not configure nfs and rpc will be started automatically.

pdntfs is an advanced printing component. Message is generated by lpr.

Thanks.

Yes, rpc is still running:

Re: pdntfs[1596943]: unable to RPC register tcp.

Some additional info:
I think the program gets started by inetd:

from /etc/inetd.conf:

# APX - notification server, prog 105005
105005/1 stream rpc/tcp wait nobody /usr/pd/lib/pdntfs pdntfs

This is the entry from "daemon.log":

Jan 13 08:19:40 orfdevdb inetd[1574124]: /usr/pd/lib/pdntfs: exit status (1)
Jan 13 08:20:11 orfdevdb last message repeated 354 times

I did not find any reference to this program (pdntfs) in the Tru64 documentation. Any hints where to look?

Thanks

Re: pdntfs[1596943]: unable to RPC register tcp.

as written in my previous posting. It is part of the advanced printing toolkit. The port 1133 is still used as seen by the rpcinfo output:

105005 1 tcp 1133
105004 1 udp 1113

so ports seem to be used, another start of pdntfs doesn't work if trying to register via portmap.

Please check if advanced printing is properly configured and post output of

grep nobody /etc/passwd

Re: pdntfs[1596943]: unable to RPC register tcp.

Thanks, I will check the printing configuration. Her is the output:

# grep nobody /etc/passwd
nobody:*Nologin:65534:65534:anonymous NFS user:/:
nobodyV:*Nologin:60001:60001:anonymous SystemV.4 NFS user:/:

Re: pdntfs[1596943]: unable to RPC register tcp.

Yes, thanks. It looks like the Advanced Printing Software was not configured correctly.
