Enhanced Storage Problem in Solaris Management Console Started in XManager

I have Sun Fire 480 with solaris 5.9 installed on it. I use XManager 1.3.9 on windows 2000 workstation to connect to it and launch Solaris Management Console (smc). After starting smc I point to Management Tools -> This Computer (sf480dbs) -> Storage -> Enhanced Storage. At that moment Log In dialog appears and I give root user name and password. After a few seconds SMC disappears (exits). If I look at CDE Error log there is the following exception

Try search the WEB for your display adapter drivers. However, most of new especially intergated graphics are still not supported.
You may try to get it working with xsun, run kdmconfig and specify as display adapter VGA or Super VGA. I know that in some cases it helps.
As well do the same with Xorg and run /usr/X11/bin/xorgcfg, try to find somekind of generic VGA in drivers that are listed there.
As I know, smc runs only in graphical mode.
I saved the settings and pressed F2 for testing. I could see the displayDid you see buttons on that display (something like "yes", "no")?
xsun is very hard to set with most of display adapters and monitors, sometimes it shows only part of the screen, so you might not to see these buttons. However if you see them, press "yes" (or something like that, I dont exactly remember). Then reboot and your computer should start the GUI.

  • Cannot start Solaris Management Console in Solaris 9

    I cannot start the Solaris Management Console in Solaris 9. The splash screen appears for a few seconds, then nothing else.
    There is a error: "Assertion Fail: Offset < fFileSize ..." something like that.
    Please help me~~~~~~~

    Java Bug 4838130:
    http://developer.java.sun.com/developer/bugParade/bugs/4838130.html
    suggests to trace the problem by running the java application with JAVA2D_DEBUGFONTS defined, so try

    The bug report also documents a workaround: Set the environment variable JAVA_FONTS to

  • Solaris Management Console Server Problems

    When I try to run Solaris Management Console, I get an error saying that the server is not running on port 898. I have followed the instructions on hte FAQ. I see no instances of smcboot running in the processes. When I run /etc/init.d/init.wbem start it returns to the prompt with no additional information. When I then run /etc/init.d/init.wbem status - it says the server is not running. Anyone have any ideas ... this is driving me nuts. I have gone so far as executing smcwbemserver by hand, and it returns "smcwbemserver [7]: /lib/functions: not found"
    Does ANYONE have any ideas (faint sobbing sounds in the background...)

    I've got the same problem on b63 aswell if I start wbem manually I get no error (infact I don't get anything) and the server just dies. Also had the same thing on a previous Solaris 10 beta and through trial and error found it to be /etc/resolv.conf misconfigured. Unfortunately I can't quite remember what I done to fix it , if I remember I'll post back.

  • SMC - Solaris Management Console in whole root zone

    Hi,
    Is it possible to run smc in whole root zone? Is there a howto for this?
    I have created a whole root zone in my x86 and sparc systems but I can't seem to manage the zones through smc (Adding users, share disks and etc).
    I was able to manage my sparse zones with smc but for some reason smc won't even start in whole root zone. The whole root zone does not seem to have smcserver and bunch of other directories relating to smc.
    Thanks...

  • Solaris Management Console (SMC) - Solaris 9 x86

    I�ve just installed Solaris 9 (x86) version. I�m unable to install Solaris Management console.
    I was using below command to add listed patches:
    pkgadd -d . SUNWpmgr SUNWrmui SUNWlvmr SUNWlvma SUNWlvmg
    I�m unable to find these packages on cd1. Somehow they�re on cd2. These cd�s are direct extract from Sun�s web site.
    Anyway when I run the pkgadd command I�m getting the following error:
    �No package associated with (SUNWpmgr)�
    When I look into the SUNWpmgr, there are 2 files (pkgmap., pkginfo.) and 3 dir (install, archive, reloc)
    Same with other packages
    Please help me.

    I was able to correct this problem on my server
    The .server file is the smc java keystore that contains
    the private/public key pair for SSL
    You can create this file by executing

  • Jds-help and Solaris Management Console compatible with jdk6u1?

    Hello,
    I am running Sol 10 11/06 for sparc on a Sun Blade. I just upgraded to jdk6u1 from jdk5. I installed all required j6 packages, and then installed patches for j6u1. I then used pkgrm to remove all jdk5-related packages (I searched for all packages starting with SUNWj5 and then removed them). Java seems to be working fine.
    Now, my Desktop Overview and other java-related help functions do not work. I get this error:
    # jds-help ghelp:jdsoverview
    ** (jdshelp:826): WARNING **: An exception occured 'Unknown CORBA exception id: 'IDL:omg.org/CORBA/COMM_FAILURE:1.0''
    A large jre error log is produced that mentions a problem with JVM:
    # An unexpected error has been detected by Java Runtime Environment:
    # SIGSEGV (0xb) at pc=0xfc94dd6c, pid=1338, tid=1
    # Java VM: Java HotSpot(TM) Client VM (1.6.0_01-b06 mixed mode, sharing)
    # Problematic frame:
    # V [libjvm.so+0x14dd6c]
    Solaris Management Console does not work either, and gives an error that no suitable java 2 version is installed in /usr/java.
    Maybe I removed a j5 package I shouldn't have. Which j5 packages are related to the operation of jds-help? Any ideas as to what is causing my problem with jds-help and smc?
    Does anyone know FOR SURE that jdshelp and smc are compatible with jdk6u1?
    Thank you...

    I got rid of jdk6 and re-installed 1.5.0.11. Solaris Management Console 2.1 works again, so it appears as if smc and Sun Studio 11 are both INCOMPATIBLE with jdk/jre6.
    jds-help still does not work, with a jvm error, so perhaps it is also incompatible with jdk/jre 1.5.0.10+.

  • Solaris 10u6 fresh install - can't get Solaris Management Console working

    Hey guys,
    I have been searching all over but can't seem to find any help on getting SMC working. I have a fresh install of Solaris 10u6 on a Sun Fire V20z.
    So I login via ssh to the solaris machine ("unknown"), and It looks like wbem is online:
    [email protected]:/# svcs wbem
    STATE          STIME    FMRI
    online         16:37:50 svc:/application/management/wbem:default
    [email protected]:/# And netstat shows that my machine is listening on port 898
    [email protected]:/# netstat -an|grep 898
    127.0.0.1.898              *.*                0      0 49152      0 LISTEN
    [email protected]:/# The problem is
    1)
    When I try to do anything in the smc launched with as
    smt -toption for terminal mode, I always end up getting the message:
    There is no Solaris Management Console Server running on localhost.2)
    If I login from my laptop with X11 forwarding on, and launch the graphical interface, it does come up with the main window that says "Solaris Management Console 2.1" and the "Open Toolbox" window. However, in the Open Toolbox window it says "Server Not Running"
    I'm not sure what I'm doing wrong, since svcs says that wbem is running... I'm pretty new to Solaris, working hard to get up to speed, so I'd really appreciate any help you guys could offer.
    Thanks,
    Jamie

    For some reason it was able to run once by running the command
    # /etc/init.d/init.wbem start
    But no matter what I do, I can't get it to work one lick with
    # svcadm enable wbem
    Any ideas guys?

  • Solaris Management Console no longer accepts logins after running JASS...

    I have an unusual problem... I have a Solaris 10 system (with the 2/16/2005 patches on it. I am able to use the Solaris Management Console (v2.1) with no issues to make my disk storage adjustments, etc etc.
    The problem is when I run JASS with the secure.driver setup. After that, the Management console no longer accepts the root password to authenticate. So, I know that JASS tightened something up, but I can't figure out what it did. Worse, when I undo the JASS run, it doesn't undo whatever it did to the security of the Management Console.
    Any idea where the Solaris Management Console gets it's security information (and configuration) from? And how I can undo whatever JASS did to it?
    Again, I've reinstalled this test box 3 times, and I know it's the JASS step that's locking me out, and not the recommended & security patches.
    Thanks to all!
    -- M

    As a followup - right after posting this message, I opened a support case for this, and the solution is that you need to go into /etc/security/policy.conf and backup JASS's change to the default encryption model.
    Change CRYPT_DEFAULT=1 back to CRYPT_DEFAULT=__unix__
    Then, you have to clear the password using "passwd -d", and then reset it again to what you want. Then, the management console will work.
    I guess the management console is set to always use the __unix__ method, and not look at the policy.conf's setting. So when JASS wanders from the default, it breaks SMC.
