LDM not starting up automaticallyMary,
I am running Solaris 8 on a Sun machine, and had the same problem. Look at the
following and see how to solve the problem. It is correspondence with Anne
Wilson at Unidata, and how I solved the problem. I think I moved my .login
file aside, and things ran fine. It's not a perfect fix, but it works and
things have run smoothly since.

Here's another thought about the ldm not starting at boot problem. I'm
wondering about the 'su -' aspect of the script that makes the shell a
login shell. There are two things I'd like you to try:
1) Try moving just the .login file to the side and then rebooting.
2) Keep .login in place, but modify the script as follows:
/bin/su ldm -c "$LDMBIN/ldmadmin delqueue"
/bin/su ldm -c "$LDMBIN/ldmadmin mkqueue"
# /bin/su ldm -c "$LDMBIN/ldmadmin delsurfqueue"
# /bin/su ldm -c "$LDMBIN/ldmadmin mksurfqueue"
/bin/su ldm -c "$LDMBIN/ldmadmin start"
That is, take out the '-' argument to su.
The former does a login but doesn't execute your .login, and the latter
will not do a login at all. Please let me know what happens.

Subject: LDM not starting up automatically
I am having difficulty in getting LDM to start up automatically on my
machine running Solaris 8. The really strange thing is that when I run the
start-up script manually, LDM starts up without any problems. However,
whenever the machine is rebooted, LDM does not start even though it is using
the same start-up script. I have checked ldmd.log and found no start errors.
I have double-checked that the ownership of the files is user ldm and not root.
I have verified that rpc is running fine by checking rpcinfo -p. What else
should I check? Thanks.
