'rup' & 'glbd' on indigo-2

Post by Fletcher Robins » Fri, 17 Sep 1993 00:47:05



I have 2 indigo-2 on my network running 4.05H. "rup" does not 'see'
any other machines on the network nor do any other machines 'see'
the 2 indigos when executing the same command. Also , the 2 indigos
can only see the global location broker on thier own machine , not
across the network. Is this an indication of a low level ethernet
problem or an application level bug on the indigos running 4.05H ?

405H is the IOP with all the ethernet fixes for Indigo, so I doubt
that is your problem.  Does everything else seem to work
(network-wise)?  I don't know enough about glb to know if running
it locally keeps products from seeing other brokers or not.

Could you have somehow configured your systems to have non-standard
broadcast addresses?  What does 'ifconfig ec0' show on all of
them?

...There is another problem with the ethernet , 'pinging' to or
from either of the indigo-2 from or to any other machine reveals
random timing responses in the range of 0msec to over 2000msec.

ifconfig ec0 shows : inet 128.99.27.23 netmask 0xffffff00
                     broadcast 128.99.27.255.

Sounds like you have a broken bridge or router in the path then.
You might want to try ping -R to see if strange routes are being
used.  traceroute might also be interesting, if you installed it.

| ifconfig ec0 shows : inet 128.99.27.23 netmask 0xffffff00

Looks reasonable, assuming that you have subnet'ed your class B net.

1. problems with 'rup'

Hello, netters;

I'm hoping someone can help me solve a problem I'm having
with the 'rup' command and the lack of response (?) from
my Indigo R4k's.  

The rup command returns responses from all the IRIS's on the
network, as well as the Power Series.  

My inetd.conf file looks okay, and /usr/etc/rpc.rstatd is
right where it should be.

I've run versions listings from one of the IRIS's, as well as
from one of the Indigos; an sdiff doesn't seem to turn up anything
which will point me in the right direction.

The syslog from the Indigo reads:

  inetd: read: iotim: No such device or address.

Any helpful hints would be greatly appreciated!
