Solaris 2.3 console ttymon not getting started

Solaris 2.3 console ttymon not getting started

Post by Pete Hartm » Wed, 08 Feb 1995 07:37:38



We have Solaris 2.3 running on a Sparcserver 10.  My console
is a terminal that emulates a wyse on port A.

When I reboot the system, the ttymon process that's supposed to
be spawned by init is not starting, and I can't log into the console.
I've tried touching the inittab and kill -HUP'ing the init process,
editing the inittab and doing the same, and other variations on this,
and I can never get the ttymon to start up right then.

However, after having fiddled like this, a day or so later when I come
back to the machine, the ttymon *has* started.

Does anyone have any clue what is going on here?  It's getting frustrating
and interfering with backups which are run from the console.

Casper Dik pointed out that all of the items in /etc/inittab
with "wait" in them have to be completed before the "respawn"
entries get started.

I had an httpd that wasn't getting started in the background,
and so was* the last wait at run level 3.

1. ttymon error:ttymon cannot allocate controlling tty on /dev/console

I can't at the moment make a console login to my Sun Solaris 2.7 box,
but only login remotely by way of ssh or rlogin.
    If I try to make a console login, it gives the following messages:

        Warning -- ttymon cannot allocate controlling tty on
"/dev/console". There may be another session active on this port.

Have any one got any ideas for the solution to this problem?
