Xstation 150 booting problems from an HACMP machine
Env: AIX 3.2.5 using HACMP
Desc: Xstation 150 was working fine until the HACMP cluster was
installed. Once the HACMP cluster was installed, the
Xstation received the error that it was not connecting to
the host machine. Jim then proceeded to change the
configuration of the Xstation to reflect the change of the
ip address of the host machine. Once this had been
completed, the Xstation was able to boot; however, it was
only booting to the gray screen -- no connection to the
host machine was apparent.
Act: After checking his configurations and determining that they
were correct, it was necessary to ensure that all of the
proper daemons were running. I had Jim execute the
the following command:
'netstat -a | grep x_st'
This command should return that the x_st_mgrd is LISTENING.
Instead of the expected results, this command returned
no output. I had Jim check his /etc/rc.tcpip file to
ensure that the line which invokes this daemon was not
commented out, and this line was not commented out. After
a short discussion with Jim, we discovered that the HACMP
cluster was not yet up. Since the rc.tcpip is invoked
after the HACMP cluster is up, and the HACMP cluster was
not up yet, the rctcpip file had never been run. He stated
that he did not bring up the cluster because he first
wanted to install a couple of PTFs. I had him execute the
line from the /etc/rc.tcpip to manually start the
x_st_mgrd. Once this command had been executed, Jim's
Xstation was working properly.
