"superglide" is a Sun Blade 1500 Silver system that was bequeathed to me by a departing colleague. It had a very old version of Solaris 10 and the original OBP firmware from 2004.
First, I upgraded the OBP to the latest:OBP 4.30.4.a 2010/01/06 14:51 Sun Blade 1500 (Silver)OBDIAG 4.30.4 2010/01/06 15:01This was much easier than I thought it would be! I read through the readme and other supporting documentation that was included with the patch (140687-02 was the latest for the SB1500 Silver) and, in no time at all:Programming was successful.I did a serial console install of Solaris 10 10/09 "Update 8", as this is going to be a headless system. The system is a NIS client. I was not adventurous in selecting the newer install options. For example, I'm using the old UFS file system. Other than putting /var on a separate slice, disk layout was standard.
When the system booted up, everything was online except rquota, rstat and rusers. The console and /var/adm/messages said:Apr 29 12:42:34 superglide inetd[1343]: [ID 702911 daemon.error] Property 'name' of instance svc:/network/nfs/rquota:default is missing, inconsistent or invalidApr 29 12:42:34 superglide inetd[1343]: [ID 702911 daemon.error] Invalid configuration for instance svc:/network/nfs/rquota:default, placing in maintenanceApr 29 12:42:37 superglide inetd[1343]: [ID 702911 daemon.error] Property 'name' of instance svc:/network/rpc/rstat:default is missing, inconsistent or invalidApr 29 12:42:37 superglide inetd[1343]: [ID 702911 daemon.error] Invalid configuration for instance svc:/network/rpc/rstat:default, placing in maintenanceApr 29 12:42:38 superglide inetd[1343]: [ID 702911 daemon.error] Property 'name' of instance svc:/network/rpc/rusers:default is missing, inconsistent or invalidApr 29 12:42:38 superglide inetd[1343]: [ID 702911 daemon.error] Invalid configuration for instance svc:/network/rpc/rusers:default, placing in maintenanceApr 29 12:48:28 superglide inetd[1343]: [ID 702911 daemon.error] Property 'name' of instance svc:/network/rpc/rstat:default is missing, inconsistent or invalidApr 29 12:48:28 superglide inetd[1343]: [ID 702911 daemon.error] Invalid configuration for instance svc:/network/rpc/rstat:default, placing in maintenanceThis is CR6361548 "inetd logs poor console message when it fails to look up rpc services", also recorded as CR6361531 "inetd can't start rstat, rquota, or rusers".
To fix, change this:rpc: nis [NOTFOUND=return] filesto this:rpc: nis filesClear the maintenance state for the affected servicessvcadm clear svc:/network/nfs/rquota:defaultsvcadm clear svc:/network/rpc/rstat:defaultsvcadm clear svc:/network/rpc/rusers:defaultEnable the services:svcadm enable svc:/network/nfs/rquota:defaultsvcadm enable svc:/network/rpc/rstat:defaultsvcadm enable svc:/network/rpc/rusers:defaultsuperglide is back and better than ever!
