[McIDAS #KFS-793806]: Trouble Installing the McIDAS-X 2005 ADDE Remote Server

You are correct, this output does not provide much, if any, help.

OK.  We loaded in all 'important' patches our our Solaris 10 systems.
This may be the difference between our setup and yours.

This seems to provide more useful information that the svcs output above.
Apparently there is something in your McIDAS configuration XML file that
inetd does not like.  Have you thought about trying to replace your
configuration file contents with what we have in ours?  If you do decide to
try this, you should make sure to backup your copy first.

I don't think that the patch that helps is listed specifically as being
for resolution of the problems you are seeing.  The unfortunate thing is
that we installed a large set of patches at the same time without worrying
about which one might fix any inetd-related problems.  I will, nonetheless,
get together with my system administrator today to see if he has a good guess
about which patch(es) should be installed on your machine first.

Yes, we have.  This was not, however, done using the McIDAS inet configuration
script, mcinet2005.sh.  Again, the reason that mcinet2005.sh does not work is
it was not designed to work with Solaris 10.  I am now working on a v2006
McIDAS release, but I have not yet had the chance to see if the v2006 version
of the inetd configurator, mcinet2006.sh, has been updated to support 
on Solaris 10.

> As always, we would really appreciate your help,

I am willing to logon to your machine to try and get things working.  Since I
would need 'root' access to work with inetd configurations, folks at USB might
not be willing for this access to be given.  If, however, you/your IT folks
are willing to let me have a login (probably best as the user 'mcidas' with
either sudo capability or after being given the 'root' password in a separate
email to address@hidden (one that does not mention any machine name))
I can look around to see if there is anything that I can do to get things

I will send more information on needed patches if/when my system administrator
can give me some sage advice.
