sun ultra 2 halts after a few hours

Discussion in 'Sun Hardware' started by Mooky Mooksgill, Jul 22, 2003.

  1. i have a U2 w/ solaris 9. after a period of inactivity, the system is
    halted - and i think badly - my /export/home and /usr/local
    partitions, etc. were missing until a fsck. power management is
    disabled my power.conf has:

    autoshutdown 30 9:00 9:00

    i ran pmconfig.

    the only thing i see interesting in /var/adm/messages is:

    Jul 22 09:20:30 Sherman inetd[155]: [ID 965992 daemon.error] pop/tcp:
    unknown service

    thanks for a clue.

  2. other than this, the machine is connected to a network and a dumb
    it is unreachable on the network. the console is a null-modem serial
    connection from a windows machine - which does get switched off. could
    the problem be happening then?

    when i turn the win machine back on and console in i see:

    {0} ok

    i type - go

    i'm prompted for a password - it doesn't say for who...

    this is the state i find the computer in after leaving it on for a few
    hours. i do logout before turning off my console machine.

    Perhaps. More likely it halts when the Windows machine goes into
    sleep mode.

    See the man page for the kbd command, and the "alternate" entry
    in the /etc/default/kbd file.
