mailsetup setup timeout

Hi all,

Re: mailsetup setup timeout

I think that host.equiv is not used for root, but /.rhosts. Verify the /.rhosts configuration.

Also ensure that r services are enabled in inetd.conf.

Ivan,

the man pages of hosts.equiv show an example with root.

See this sample:

# rlogin localhost
Last successful login for root: Fri Nov 4 07:16:13 PYST 2005 from 10.129.5.220
Last unsuccessful login for root: Sat Oct 15 15:56:56 PYT 2005 from 10.129.5.220

The installation software has successfully installed your system.

There are logfiles that contain a record of your installation. These are:

/var/adm/smlogs/install.cdf - configuration description file
/var/adm/smlogs/install.log - general log file
/var/adm/smlogs/install.FS.log - file system creation logs
/var/adm/smlogs/setld.log - log for the setld(8) utility
/var/adm/smlogs/fverify.log - verification log file


You have mail.

rlogin: connection closed.
# cd
# mv .rhosts .rhost-file
# rlogin localhost
Password:



If a file cannot be accessed using the rcp or rsh commands complete the following steps:

1. Verify that the user is intended to have access to the remote
host. The remote host might be intentionally preventing
remote access.

2. Verify that the correct host and user definitions exist in the
userâ s .rhosts file on the remote host.

3. Verify that the /etc/hosts.equiv file is set up correctly.

4. Verify that the directory and file protection on the files to be
copied or the .rhosts file on the remote system are correct.

Ivan,

I am getting a timeout and not a request for password.

Re: mailsetup setup timeout

Oh!, right.

Is the host name specified in the host.equiv and .rhosts file correctly resolved?.

You should verify the ifaccess.conf file.

See "Updating ifaccess.conf When Changing Network Interfaces" in the Cluster Administration documentation. Is the ics0 interface up and running? (It should be or nothing will work, but just to be sure)

ics0: flags=1100063
inet 10.0.0.1 netmask ffffff00 broadcast 10.0.0.255 ipmtu 7000

Re: mailsetup setup timeout

One more question, if you do rlogin localhost on each node, you also get timeout?

Re: mailsetup setup timeout

Hi Ivan,

thanks for your time.
I have rebooted the second member and now the problem is gone. I also did a renumbering of the network devices in /etc/rc.config to match the other members config. I do not know however whether that should have any influence.

Thanks anyway,

Michael
