Xstation booting to 8825 error.
ENV: 325, Model 580, Xstation 130
DESC: The customer is currently having difficulties with
a NIS master server, and their Xstations will not boot.
The Xstations 130s are on 10baseT ethernet, and the
Xstation we worked with is on the same network as the
ACT: Went over the customer's Xstation configuration, network
type configuration, and ran thru the xstation.tcp fax
in an effort to correct his problem. We discovered that
the nobody user had expired, but unexpiring it and
restarting x_st_mgrd did not allow the xstation to
boot successfully. The xstation appears to be failing
in the TFTP portion of the boot, eventually getting
a 8825 indicating a ethernet problem.
Checked the permissions on the /bin and /etc directories to ensure that
they were 755. They were not, we changed them to 755. Checked the
nobody account in the /etc/passwd file and the /etc/group file:
Had the customer change the entry in /etc/inetd.conf from user
nobody to user root and the Xstation booted - therefore it
looks like we have a permission problem
Next - had the customer run usrck -n nobody - this command
returned errors about not being able to access the home
directory (which is /). Looked at the permissions in / for . and ..
and they were 770 - fixed the permissions on these files (775)
and the Xstations booted properly - this also corrected some other
problems they had with users not being able to log in.
