Subject: diagconfd running, excitations back in dtt 

Problem:

Diagnostic test tools was starting with errors.

Cause:

After the reboot of the frame builder machine yesterday by Alex, the diagconfd daemon was not getting started by xinetd.  There was a sequence error in the startup where xinetd was being called before mounting drives from linux1.

Important Note:

If you do not see the "nds" line you would not have diagnostic tests enabled in the DTT:

[controls@rosalba apps]$ diag -i | grep nds
nds * * 192.168.113.202 8088 * 192.168.113.202

Solution:

Alex changed /etc/xinetd.d/diagconfd file to point to /opt/apps/gds/bin/diagconfd instead of /opt/apps/bin/diagconf.  He also ensured xinetd started after mounting from linux1.

Alex's Suggestion:
My feeling is we should get rid of this feature and have an NDS address
entry box in the "Online" tab in the DTT with the default "nds". I
mentioned this to Jim Batch and he greed with me, so maybe he is going to
implement this. So maybe you guys want to request the same thing too, send
the request to Rolf and Jim, so we can have the last demon exercised.
