Hi again,
edit /etc/rc.tcpip, remove the comment (#) at the beginning of the appropriate line
rstatd  sunrpc_udp     udp     wait    root    /usr/sbin/rpc.rstatd rstatd 100001 1-3
save your changes and issue
refresh -s inetd
or use "smitty mkinetdconf"
That's all.

Sorry, that was a mistake of mine!
Of course you must change
/etc/inetd.conf
Sorry again!!

i was unable to find RSTATD  in /etc/rc.tcpip, can just changing the /etc/inetd.conf file and refreshing it work?

also i was told that editing uncommenting the rstatd line in /etc/services was also part of enabling RSTATD along with editing /etc/inetd.conf ? can you confirm that. is that change also needed.

Of course you couldn't find rstatd in /etc/rc.tcpip!! That was a bad mistake from my side, as I wrote!

Yes, uncommenting the rstatd entry in /etc/inetd.conf and issuing refresh -s inetd "can work", moreover, it "will work"!

rstatd is a sunrpc program, and thus has not an entry in /etc/services (in /etc/rcp it does have one).
As long as the portmap daemon is running all will be fine.

portmap in its turn is started in /etc/rc.tcpip (really!) by default, but you can check nonetheless in that file for
an uncommented entry

# Start up Portmapper
start /usr/sbin/portmap "$src_running"

Should the above entry be comented out (I've never seen that!) uncomment it and issue "startsrc -s portmap"

Done
