Error configuring pmd daemon - problem receiving traps
Netview v4/unable to configure the PMD daemon
ENV: AIX 4.1.x, NV 4.1 with U438904
When try to configure pmd daemon gets about 8 similar errors
/usr/OV/bin/filterlrf: u: 0403-009 The specified
number is not va
This worked on version 2 and 3, but not on 4.
It turns out that U438904 causes a problem with the configuration of
the pmd daemon. This is a known problem and has been fixed. APAR
IX54136 this will be resolved on U440147 when it comes out.
Until then heres the workaround:
INTERNAL DEFECT 24346
After appling PTF U438904 to NetView for AIX V4r1 Server, doing
smit nv6000 -> Configure -> Set options for daemons ->
Set options for event and trap processing daemons ->
Set options for pmd daemon
Causes the following error messages to appear:
1800-106 An error occurred:
/usr/OV/bin/filterlrf 740 : u: 0403-009 The specified number
is not valid for this command.
(This is repeated 8 times.
740, 754, 770, 784 for the u and t options)
The error is caused by a scripting error in the script file
See LOCAL FIX: below for workaround.
The correct the above error perform the following:
1. cd /usr/OV/bin
2. cp filterlrf filterlrf.BAD
3. vi filterlrf
type :set nu
go to line 740 to start
740 if $2 -eq "u" | =left square backet
| =right square backet
replace the -eq with a = sign (single equal sign)
740 if $2 = "u"
Repeat the same process for lines
replacing the -eq with a = sign (a single equal sign)
Save the file.
The pmd fuction fails in the filterlrf file.
The eq is used to evaluate instead of the =.
