Hi All,

I am seeing below strange error while inittab is getting processed for each line on my old AIX 5.2 box ( I know its out of support , but still being used for legacy apps for my client)..

I compared into other similar box., but didn't see anything wrong with /etc/inittab...any idea what is causing this error..?

 

Please reply..

    I don't think it's your /etc/inittab but rather the /etc/inetd.conf file. At a first glance, it looks like someone took out all the hash symbols ('#') so the copyright notice is now being interpreted as configuration lines.

    If it's not your /etc/inetd.conf file you might also want to take a look at /etc/services, which defines the port numbers, and is used by inetd as well.
