Ok, here is the deal. This is our setup.
One Challenge Web server (no monitor,keyboard etc)
One Indigo2 -- Used as virtual terminal for Challenge.
Ok, since about 2 days ago, whenever I log in as Root, the directory is
EMPTY! Anything that I try to run says that it can not write to the root
directory. According to the Machine I have >700meg free. So it isn't a
space problem. I am VERY new to the SGI/UNIX world so bare with me..
Ok, I tried to do a secured shell to the challenge machine and I get an
error. I try to run Ping or Telnet or ANYTHING in the console --
ping- command not found. So I go to the directory that contains it, and
the ONLY way I can run it is if I write
or whatever other program that I want to use.
My shell no longer works, I get a % for a prompt.. and basically, the
whole damn thing is screwed up. What could this be attributed to? I
called SGI tech support and they said "Wipe the Machine/reinstall" and
I wanted to check with all of you gurus out there before I did anything.
Well, thanks in advance!
