and can I make cdsl for /etc/inittab and who can I solve this problem

thanks in advance

Re: lat problem in trucluster

If you used latsetup to create SRV4 devices, both members should have /dev/lat/6xx special files, lets say you told latsetup to create 20 devices, so you will have /dev/lat/620 till 639.
Hopefully you did not tell latsetup to put 20 devices in /etc/inittab, because then they are all 20 reserved by a getty, p.ex:

lat620:34:respawn:/usr/sbin/getty /dev/lat/620 console vt100
lat621:34:respawn:/usr/sbin/getty /dev/lat/621 console vt100
lat622:34:respawn:/usr/sbin/getty /dev/lat/622 console vt100
lat623:34:respawn:/usr/sbin/getty /dev/lat/623 console vt100

These CANNOT be used for printing.

For printing you need to tell the system on what LAT terminal server and port on this server the printer is connected. You do this as follows:

Create the file /etc/latstartup.conf, in that file put lines like this:

/usr/sbin/latcp -A -p639 -H -R

After that use lprsetup (or sysman) to create an entry in /etc/printcap that uses device /dev/lat/639.

NOTE: /etc/inittab MUST be a CDSL, if it is not, someone clobbered the link by using the mv command on inittab. If the CDSL is gone you need to recreate is as follows:

cd /etc
ln -s ../cluster/members/{memb}/etc/inittab
(verify that the target file exists)

Do not use mkcdsl, because inittab is already in the cdsl-inventory.

sir ;
thanks you but there is problem that when I creat lat device via latsetup , it's created lat device only in current member you excute latsetup on it ,

Yes, you need to run latsetup on the other member too. The /dev directory is member-specific, ie: /dev --> /cluster/members/{memb}/dev.

Kind rgds,
