Question sun-dr/tcp: bind: Address already in use

Hi Gurus,

One of my system has been logging the above error message very frequently.

I have done a check on google and the suspect cause is due to more than one instances of inetd. I have verify that my system is only running a single instance of inetd.

Any advice or help?

This message is likely linked to inetd restarts.
sundr (remote dynamic reconfiguration, man dcs) is started by inetd, but its service is not stopped when inetd ends, thus the conflict at next inetd start, no big deal.

If for some reason (the manual states that its have no negative impact), you decide to remove sun-dr from /etc/inet/inetd.conf, don't forget to remove the correspondig entries in /etc/inet/ipsecinit.conf too.

Hi jlliagre,

Discover that the dcs was running on the background.

Did a pkill -n dcs and the no more error log.

Thanks for you advice.
