bootpd : Ip address not found

Post by g_m_ba.. » Thu, 14 Sep 2000 03:24:31



I just noticed that in my /var/adm/messages log I have
many records that look like :

bootpd[3925]: IP address not found: xxx.xxx.15.123
bootpd[3925]: IP address not found: xxx.xxx.16.181
bootpd[3925]: IP address not found: xxx.xxx.13.97

with all differnet IP addresses of different people in
my organization.  What is going on here?

                                        TIA

I don't know, but when you find a solution/reason, please let me know as
I am seeing the same thing.

Robert,

        I was playing around and I think maybe I found
the solution.  bootpd is an "Internet boot protocol server".
I'm really just a hack so don't take this advice too seriously
but what I did was comment out the following line in /etc/inetd.conf :

bootps  dgram  udp wait   root /usr/sbin/bootpd   bootpd

If I understand correctly this is used to boot systems over
the network which I have no plans of doing.  I could be all
wrong about this, but my system did succesfully reboot and
no more messages.

Also note that no version of solaris that I'm aware of has shipped with
that line in inetd.conf, nor with /usr/sbin/bootpd (although it does
have a dhcp server).  

That means that this was set up on your server by someone in the past.
You may be disabling something that is needed for some other systems.

I'm sure your sun will reboot and will not give you those messages any
more.  There is some chance that some other system somewhere (xterminal,
printer,...) will not reboot successfully.

You might want to look for a file called bootptab and see if any of the
systems in it are still around and used.  Those would be the machines
that the bootpserver is handing out addresses to.

My system is as vanilla as they come and no one else has ever logged
in as root ( at least that I am aware of :) ).  I'm Running Solaris 7
upgrade from 2.5.1 on an Ultra 2

HP's JetAdmin network print package inserts that line.  You can check
to see if it's installed with "pkginfo -l HPNP". If so that's probably
your culprit.

1. bootpd: ip address not found

Hello, were having a problem, the syslog is filled with this
kind of error messages:

Oct 11 07:05:09 server1 bootpd?657?: IP address not found: x.x.x.x
Oct 11 07:06:27 server1 bootpd?657?: IP address not found: x.x.x.x
Oct 11 07:06:29 server1 bootpd?657?: IP address not found: x.x.x.x
Oct 11 07:07:54 server1 bootpd?657?: IP address not found: x.x.x.x
Oct 11 07:10:02 server1 bootpd?657?: IP address not found: x.x.x.x

The ip addresses are distributed by our dhcp server and the sco unix
server shouldnt have anything to do with it. I've never seen anything
like it before, it happens on both of our sco unix servers.

Cheers,

Joakim
