Do this:

o  rm /etc/sm.bak/tody
o  kill off rpc.statd process
o  Restart rpc.statd.

1. Need help with rpc.statd and rpc.lockd messages (AIX 3.2)

For each workstation that I've upgraded to AIX 3.2 so far, we start to
get these messages on the console:

        Cannot register service: RPC: 1882-008 timed out
        rpc.statd: 1831-119 unable to register
                (SM_PROG, SM_VERS, udp)
        rpc.lockd: 1831-057 unable to register
                (NLM_PROG, NLM_VERS, tcp)

Are we missing something in /etc/services?  Any suggestions or help or
comments would definitely be appreciated.  Thanks in advance.
