VxVM vxdisk ERROR V-5-1-684 IPC failure: Configuration daemon is not accessible

I have a RHEL4(AS) server. Just installed VxVM 4.1. Whenever I reboot the server the "vxconfigd" daemon does not start. However, when I issue the command "vxdisk list" I get "VxVM vxdisk ERROR V-5-1-684 IPC failure: Configuration daemon is not accessible". However, I can start the daemon manually via vxconfigd command. I have checked as much as I can. All the necessary modules are loaded etc. Can someone pls help.

[root@proliant1 sbin]# lsmod |grep vx
vxportal 8064 0
vxfs 1529904 2 fdd,vxportal
vxspec 15500 2
vxio 1735704 1
vxdmp 198308 4
scsi_mod 116557 3 vxdmp,cciss,sd_mod

cd /lib/modules/`uname -r`

Shalom,

I recommend restoring the system from a backup.

This product is clearly not meant for a base unupdated RHEL 4 installation.

Hi,
You have probably read this doc and made some troubleshoot yet
http://seer.entsupport.symantec.com/docs/301909.htm
but it's for rhel5 not for rhel4, so I think your could waste time to troubleshoot an issue with rhel4 with solution on rhel5.
If you could update/reinstall your redhat to rhel5 and restart the vxvm install.

Many Thanks to those people who replied. I have now solved the problem. Silly me, I did not remove the file /etc/vx/reconfig.d/state.d/install-db. Instead I spent too much focusing on loading the modules.
