Pinned topic Log messages breaking in to console session

‏2012-05-11T09:09:02Z |
Hello,

When I console on to my AIX LPARs which are running the Systems Director agent I get a constant stream of messages e.g.:

AIX Version 6
Copyright IBM Corporation, 1982, 2011.
Console login: root 6619262 1 0 10:03:23 - 0:00 bin/nonstop_aix @/var/opt/tivoli/ep/runtime/nonstop/config/nonstop.properties

As you can see this happens even before I log in.

How can I stop these messages breaking in to my console session?
Thanks
Glenn

    I think the start/stop script of cas agent is bugged.
    There may be a line which output is not redirected and causes output to console :

    /var/opt/tivoli/ep/runtime/nonstop/bin/cas_src.sh
    ...
    /usr/bin/ps -ef | grep nonstop_aix
    ...

    Correct the line to redirect output :

    
    root# stopsrc -s cas.agent root# vi /var/opt/tivoli/ep/runtime/nonstop/bin/cas_src.sh root# startsrc -s cas.agent
    


    /usr/bin/ps -ef | grep nonstop_aix >> $CAS_SRC_LOG
    or
    /usr/bin/ps -ef | grep nonstop_aix > /dev/null 2>&1

    That's better but not completely.

    I amended the file as you'd indicated.

    This has reduced the number of messages. I now get:

    The LWI Nonstop Profile is already running.
    The LWI Nonstop Profile is already running.
    The LWI Nonstop Profile is already running.
    The LWI Nonstop Profile is already running.
    The LWI Nonstop Profile is already running.
    The LWI Nonstop Profile is already running.
    The LWI Nonstop Profile is already running.

    There's a 10 second gap between each message.

    The following shell is called in /var/opt/tivoli/ep/runtime/nonstop/bin/cas_src.sh and is responsible of "LWI Nonstop Profile" startup.

    ...
    /var/opt/tivoli/ep/runtime/nonstop/bin/installnonstop.sh -start >> $CAS_SRC_LOG
    ...

    Try to find why LWI Nonstop Profile is still trying to be started as it is already running, and/or maybe the startup shell output isn't redirected to logfile.

    Hi,
    might it be syslog issue? We have following line in /etc/syslog.conf:

    # *.debug /dev/console

    So I presume, that it is possible to direct some messages to console. Though, when I tried to confirm this behavior with:

    echo test > /dev/console

    i did not get what I expected - it should have printed "test" in my terminal...
