Server did not know it's name
Did a sys-unconfig, rebooted, reidentified the server (name, ip address)
Resetup DNS and all services working
Kevin Crowe of SUN Support
Came in this morning to find that Solstice did no backups this weekend.
In the networker window is the error message Server not Available.
ps -ef | grep nsr
root 993 1 16 09:22:41 ? 0:00 /usr/sbin/nsr/nsrexecd -s
/usr/sbin/nsr/nsrd is not running
i tried running nsrd but get the error
get_myaddress: ioctl (get interface configuration): Invalid argument
and then nsrd dies
i tried using the startup/kill script in /etc/rc2.d, but got the same
man page on get_myaddress says it is only around for backward compatability
and was not very helpfull to me.
if anyone has some ideas, i would appreciate hearing them.
thanks, and will summarize
REPLIES FROM SUN-MANAGERS Charity Gustine
I had something similar happen to me. In my case it was because my nsrhost
alias had been removed from the host file. So none of my clients could talk
to the server.
One other time my server lost connection while attempting to back up, so it
was necessary for me to restart the daemons on the clients. Sun says that
this is sometimes necessary.
Have you tried going to the /etc/rc2.d/S??Networker and doing the stop, and
then a start? If you have done this are there any errors, when the daemons
REPLIES FROM SUN-MANAGERS Alex Finkel
Haven't seen this problem, but do you have your networker (soltice) server
aliased as NSRHOST either in /etc/hosts or in DNS?
Also, maybe nsrd died and the ports are still "in use". Try rebooting the
AFTER RECIEVING REPLIES
/etc/hosts server was aliased as nsrhost
had already tried /etc/rc2.d/S??Networker stop and start
planning a reboot at the end of the day
NOW IT GETS INTERESTING
Almost no services working localally
No services working outside of our network
a little investigating and find services not knowing the servers name
even uname -n returns nothing
checked files hostname, nodename, hosts ... all looked corect
rebooted the server with no change
called sun support and got Kevin Crowe
we looked at all the files again, rebooted and no change
* now did a sys-unconfig
* rebooted the server
* reidentified the server (name, ip address, gateway, name service ...)
* resetup DNS
* had to readd the nsrhost aliase back into the hosts file
* all services working as before
THANKS TO ALL THAT REPLIED
