[Cisco FAQ] - Stopping DNCS processes

pravora

The processes on the DNCS are running, but when I try and stop any processes they are still running.  Is there a way to correct this? What are the particular steps?

Yes. The processes are controlled by “dncsInitd” and use the file “snmp.cf” for their configuration.

•1)      From an xterm window, type

$dncsControl

If the system responds as follows, the dncsInitd is no longer running correctly:

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------

AppExec - Application Executive Utility.

SNMX V4.1 (c) 1994-1997

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Connecting ...

No response from 'dncs': No connection established.

( Return To Acknowledge Error )>

•2)      Copy the current snmp.cf file to a new file:

$cd /dvs/dncs/bin

$cp –p snmp.cf snmp.cf.broken

•3)      Copy the original snmp.cf to replace the current file:

$cd /dvs/dncs/bin

$cp –p snmp.cf.orig snmp.cf

•4)      Stop all processes

$dncsKill

Note: All processes in the “DNCS Control” side bar should go from “green” to “red”

•5)      Start all processes

$dncsStart

Note: All processes in the “DNCS Control” side bar should go from “red” to “green”

•6)      Verify you have regained control of the processes by running:

$dncsControl

Note: The dncsControl window should open as normal
