bootps/udp in my syslog

Hi all,

i have a weird error in my syslog.log

"bootps/udp: bind: address already in use"
"bootps/udp: service enable"

the result of that is that i can't do a rlogin to that server and my inetd keeps crashing.

I've checked my inted.conf file and all is ok.

I also have Data Protector running on that server and when i try to connect with my client, i get the message:
"cannot reach CRS on the cell manager system"
"CRS on the cell manager host is not reachable"

Could my weekend backup be the cause of this?

Thanks.

Re: bootps/udp in my syslog

Hi ,

Hi can you give us how is configured bootp service in your inetd ?
What is the value of bootps in you /etc/services ?

This error seems indicate that the port reserved to udp is already use before you lauch inetd .

Could you stop inetd , and try to look if bootps is used via netstat -a |grep -i bootps ?

Regards ,

Re: bootps/udp in my syslog

bootps in my inetd.conf is set to 67/udp

when i run netstat -a|grep -i bootps i get

udp 0 0 *.bootps *.*

Are you sure that it's because of
"bootps/udp: bind: address already in use"?

I have the same messages, nevertheless I can rlogin.
Maybe you have to look at another detail ...

Only a hint

Re: bootps/udp in my syslog

what about inetd.conf : cat /etc/inetd.conf | grep boot


perhaps V. Nyga had right , can you try to comment the configuration of bootps in you inetd.cond and stop/start inetd and see what happened .

Re: bootps/udp in my syslog

Hi all,

found my problem.
when i looked into the nettl.LOG000 file,
i saw that there was another device using the ip address of my server.

When i checked my arp table, there was another MAC address linked with my server's IP address.

Changed the IP of the device and all is working ok now.

Thanks for all the info you provided.

Regards.
