AFP Startup in OES2 SP1 Linux

Hello,

I have set novell-afptcpd to run at startup in Yast>System Services (Runlevel) when I check to see if the service is running in iManager it shows that it is running, however the volumes are inaccessable unless I stop and restart the service.

Any ideas or suggestions?

Thank you,
Larry

Re: AFP Startup in OES2 SP1 Linux

what version of afp? what do your afp logs say?
if you do a service-name status before stopping & restarting it, does it
actually say it is running?

Larry,

NSS volumes would have not been available to AFP server by the time it is up. "rcnovell-afptcpd reload" will show up the volumes.There is no need to stop and restart the service.
You can resolve the issue if you place some delay(15 to 30 sec) before you start the AFP service.

These kind of things could happen when you are using high-end machines with multiple processors running. Normally NSS will take some time to enable/mount the volumes. If the both services(NSS and AFP) started almost simutaneously, there is a chance of NSS volumes not available to AFP server.

Thanks,
Hemanth

You can also provide the following logs.
1) /var/log/afptcpd/afptcp.log
2) /var/log/boot.msg

This is OES2 SP1 Linux right?

There should be no need to set novell-afptcpd to run at startup as that
should already be configured by default.

This is true ! I opened a S.R for this and Novell ask me to modify in /etc/init.d/novell-afptcpd


case "$1" in
start)

## Waiting for the volumes to come up after reboot
sleep 60
echo -n "Waiting for AFP initializing ..."

wait_and_then_try_loading_zapi
echo -n "Starting the novell-afptcpd daemon"

And this solution fixed the issue.
