Hope this helps!

Re: tftp/udp: Unknown service

Is there an active entry for "tftp" in
"/etc/services"?

Re: tftp/udp: Unknown service

nsswitch.conf for services is defining a source which doesn't contain a tftp/udp entry
or /etc/services doesn't contain
tftp 69/udp # Trivial File Transfer Protocol


inetd is trying to start tftpd service which is not defined in the services table pointed by nsswith.conf

the consequence is that no tftp to the system will work - or if it is an ignite server, system which are backup on that system won't start with ignite-



if you need tftp service, then you need to add it to /etc/services, and check that files is well defined as a source for services: in nsswitch.conf
--- or you need to have it defined on the other possible sources like nis, ldap ....


or if you don't need tftp service you can comment it in /etc/inetd.conf
