inetd offline in solaris

In Solaris 10 SPARC server, inetd service is offline. I am unable to start the services and as a result all the network services like telnet, ssh, ftp etc.. are not running, hence I am unable to connect to the server remotely.

hello

in solaris 10  there is special coommand for that

if you want telnet for example

type :
inetadm | grep telnet

you must see disabled

then do

inetadm -e telnet

or the exact name you see on the line the command before

and then normally telnet is active now

to see that redo  the first command

inetadm | grep telnet

and see enabled online ¨¨

Hi,
without knowing the error messages we won't be able to help, I guess.
So, please, look at  /var/adm/messages or wherever your message log is.

Post the output of:

svcs -x inetd

This will give you extended attributes including its state, and a reason for being in that state. Example:

bash-3.2# svcadm disable inetd
bash-3.2# svcs -x inetd
svc:/network/inetd:default (inetd)
 State: disabled since  5 November 2008 11:45:47 GMT
Reason: Disabled by an administrator.
   See: http://sun.com/msg/SMF-8000-05
   See: inetd(1M)
   See: /var/svc/log/network-inetd:default.log
Impact: 5 dependent services are not running.  (Use -v for list.)

First, check the status of the inetd service with this command:

 svcs -x svc:/network/inetd:default

If it is disabled, then enable it with this command:

svcadm enable svc:/network/inetd:default

Then do the svcs command again. If it is now in maintenance mode or it was in maintenance before,
look for the reason. It will possible say that there is a prerequisit service that is also not running, or it
will say to look in the file /var/svc/log/network-inetd:default.log. If the latter, take a look there.  The next step
depends on what you find.

There are very few services that run via inetd in Solaris 10.  ssh certainly doesn't and I'm pretty sure ftpd doesn't either.

Hi,

Below is the output of the command "svcs -x -v inetd",

svc:/network/inetd:default (inetd)
 State: offline since Fri Dec 05 06:49:45 2008
Reason: Service svc:/network/dns/client:default has missing dependencies.
   See: http://sun.com/msg/SMF-8000-GE
  Path: svc:/network/inetd:default
          svc:/milestone/name-services:default
            svc:/network/dns/client:default
   See: man -M /usr/share/man -s 1M inetd
Impact: 3 dependent services are not running:
        svc:/milestone/multi-user:default
        svc:/milestone/multi-user-server:default
        svc:/system/zones:default

RowleyCommented:
Now check what the problem is with the dns client service:

svcs -x svc:/network/dns/client:default

Deepti_vobilineniAuthor Commented:
Now the inetd services are up and running.

The problem was with /etc/resolv.conf file.

Thank you.

It seems to me like we helped this user track down the cause of the problem. This, in my view and going by the grading recommendations would indicate at minimum a grade B answer.

OK...all is forgiven.
