SUMMARY: Problem Dataless with CDE 1.0.1

I should have sent the question earlier cause I found a solution by myself
a couple of minutes later ;-)

I'm not really satisfied with it, so I will welcome any further idea.
My simple solution is that you have to share the /usr partition from the server
with root rights for all the clients. I.e. something like this on the server
> more /etc/dfs/dfstab

share -F nfs -o rw,root=pinga:daiquiri /export/exec/Solaris_2.5_sparc.all/usr

CU, Dirk.

-- original posting-------------------------------

Any clue for this problem ?

I've some dataless clients served from a sparc 20 under Solaris 2.5
I also have /opt linked from this server to the clients. Everything
works fine but the CDE. I use CDE 1.0.1.
I invoke /usr/dt/bin/dtconfig -inetd resulting in the message:
>Next system boot, following will be run from /usr/dt/bin
> rpc.ttdbserverd (ToolTalk)
> rpc.cmsd (Calendar Manager)
> dtspcd (Subprocess Control)

after this I invoke /usr/dt/bin/dtconfig -e and reboot.

But nothings happen after the reboot. Everything works fine but none of the
above mentioned processes are running and I'm welcomed with a command line

TIA, Dirk.
