Rdist version mismatch

I am rdisting fine to my other solaris servers. However, I cannot rdist to my Linux servers.

When I try to rdist to my Linux servers, I get "rdist: connection failed: version numbers don't match"

The man page says that this error may be due to "some problem with starting your shell"

I am running bash on both my solaris and my linux box. What could be causing this problem?

Thanks. Mike

This works with solving the problem between hpux and Solaris, so this may work:


The HP machine does not have a /usr/ucb/rdist directory.

In order to get this to work you need to create a symbolic link from
/usr/ucb/rdist to /usr/bin/rdist.

You would be able to see this problem by using snoop and 'rdist -D'
and noting that there is no /usr/ucb/rdist directory on the HP machine.

Thanks for the adivce. However, I created the link, and it still didn't work.

The man on Linux refers to using the previous version of rdist if invoked with rdist -S. However, I don't have the previous version of rdist on this server. Where would I get it?

(last line of output from rdist -D)
buf = /usr/ucb/rdist -Server
rdist: connection failed: version numbers don't match

Thanks. -Mike

I think that the Solaris version of rdist isn't using the same protocol version as the Linux rdist. You might try getting and building rdist-6.1.5 (which is what Linux uses) and you can get it from ftp://ftp.cc.utexas.edu/source/applications/rdist-6.1.5/

Excellent work. I downloaded the rdist v6.1.3 and it worked great (after I mad e a symlink from /usr/sbin/rdistd to /usr/bin/rdistd on the linux machine.
Thanks for all your help.
