Re: randd problem


randd is used with DCE.
You may want to try restarting DCE with dcesetup.

There have been some version-specific problems.

Just google for: +tru64 +randd

This will bring up several article to get you working in the rigth directortion.

For example:

http://support.entegrity.com/private/technotes/netcdce/412GR.HTM
This described how to add (if appropriate)
"disable randd"
to
/opt/dcelocal/dce_services.db


fwiw,
Hein.

Rambo,

Disabling randd process reduces system overhead and improve system performance.

To disable this process edit /opt/dcelocal/dce_services.db and
add "disable randd" and restart your DCE.

OR

edit /opt/dcelocal/bin/dcesetup and modify these lines in the following way

dce_randd_start=0
export dce_randd_start and
restart DCE
