vxconfigd not starting

Hi I have a system with Redhat enterprise Linux 4. I have installed veritas storage foundation. After installation, I am unable to strt vxconfigd. Here is the error I get.

"VxVM vxconfigd FATAL ERROR V-5-1-8379 vxdmp driver not loaded on the system. This version of VxVM mandatorily requires vxdmp to be loaded. Exiting."

Can any one help me on this?

Thanks and regards

Re: vxconfigd not starting

Looks like something's wrong with the installed module.
Do you see a loaded "vxdmp" module with lsmod?
Try to load manually: "insmod vxdmp".

If this is a fresh install, check the veritas install logs for errors/warnings!

My 2 cents,

Re: vxconfigd not starting

Its a fresh install. In install log too its giving errors related to driver. With vx related commands, its giving the error "VxVM vxdmpadm INFO V-5-1-4084 vxdmp module is not loaded on the system. DMP is disabled."

see the output of your command
[root@kripa test]# insmod vxdmp
insmod: can't read 'vxdmp': No such file or directory

Re: vxconfigd not starting

I don't have a veritas system here to try/check, so this is from memory:
Try to find the vxdmp module in /lib/modules//...
The name should be similar to vxdmp.ko.
E.g. try find /lib -name "vx*"

If you don't find anything, the installation is not complete.
If it's there and insmod works, /etc/modules.conf might miss some entries.
The last question: Is RHEL4 supported by your Veritas SF version?

My 2 cents,
Armin
