When adding or reseting serial printers in on Solaris 9 system, we use the following command (as an example):
/usr/opt/annex/rtelnet -broaP 10.15.4.10 7002 /dev/bm015
This seems to work fine most of the time, but occasionally an error such as the following will appear:
ERR :10512:20041027204139: Unable to allocate a master pty.
When this error occurs, the only way around it is to do a reboot; which is not very convenient. Please let us know what is causing this error and provide a way around it outside of having to reboot the system.
