sco_cpd: SIOCGIFADDR: Cannot assign requested address

Post by Lucky Leavel » Fri, 29 May 1998 04:00:00



Since resinstalling OSR5.0.4c over the weekend, my /uar/adm/syslog shows
the following errors:

May 26 09:21:28 ris sco_cpd: cpd: SIOCGIFADDR: Cannot assign requested address
May 27 09:21:29 ris sco_cpd: cpd: SIOCGIFADDR: Cannot assign requested address
May 28 09:21:31 ris sco_cpd: cpd: SIOCGIFADDR: Cannot assign requested address

They are also echoed to the console (tty01) and occur at 9:21 each day. A
check of crontab shows no processes being fired off then or shortly
before.

Any idea of what this error/warning/notice means and what, if anything, do
I need to do about it?

Thank you,
Lucky

Grabbed this TA and checked both of the suggestions:

    1. /etc/inittab had only one instance of ifor_pmd

    2. /etc/conf/init.d/sio had no instances of ifor_pmd

I wonder if this has something to do with the routing problem reported in
thread "OSR5.0.4c: Routing/DNS Problems (Was: ..."

1. ifconfig ... le0: Cannot assign requested address

I'm trying to configure my old Solaris box to use a static IP.  From what I
read, I should only have to configure two files.  Is this incorrect?

1) I have a /etc/hostname.le0 file which contains:    nameofcomputer

2) I have a /etc/hosts file which contains :
                            127.0.0.1                localhost
                            66.149.xxx.xxx        nameofcomputer (where the
x's are numbers)

On bootup, I get the error:
    "configuring network interfaces:ifconfig: SIOCSIFADDR: le0: Caannot
assign requested address"

What am I missing here.  I tried playing around with manually running
ifconfig but to no avail.  The IP address I'm using for nameofcomputer is a
valid static IP for my network, and one which no other computer has taken.

Any help is appreciated.  Thanks
