Hi ,

You can check files  /etc/rc.config,d/  for any misconfiguration, 

The cause for more dot is some profile related issue seems to be, and it slows down the hp-ux startup process.

If your system used to work normally, then look in /etc/rc.config.d for junk files. There can be *NO* junk files in this diretory. That includes old copies of edited files, temporary files, anything that is not to be used during bootup. To halp find these recent additions, use:


ls -lrt /etc/rc.config.d


This will show the most recently added and changed files at the end of the list.


Here is another possibility:
