APAR status

  • Closed as program error.

Error description

  • If a line in /etc/inetd.conf is commented out with
    multiple #'s like this:
    
    ##shell   stream  tcp6    nowait  root
        /usr/sbin/rshd         rshd
    
    Running 'aixpert -c -p' will result in the following
    error message in /etc/security/aixpert/check_report.txt:
    
    cominetdconf.sh: Service shell should have status d,
    however its entry is missing from /etc/inetd.conf
    
    
    
    This will not happen if there is just one #.
    

Local fix

  • To work around this, make sure only one # is used to
    comment out a line.
    

Problem summary

  • The customer will get an invalid error message in the
    check_report.txt for aixpert if there is more than one #
    in a comment in the /etc/rc.tcpip file.
    

Problem conclusion

  • Modified the cominetdconf script to handle more than one # in
    a comment.
