We are having a very strange intermittent problem with the UV command not working from Unix.
Occasionally, after a user logs into Unix (without noticing anything unusual) typing "UV" simply returns the user to the UNIX shell almost instantly. When the problem occurs it seems to affect everyone who logins in and attempts to go into Universe for a period of time and then the problem seems to resolve itself. Any users who logged into Unix during that period of time still can not go into Universe but new logins work fine. The problem seems to be with Universe. Unix commands work fine and when we have tried executing other Universe commands which normally can be run from Unix they fail also. The Unix login script seems to run fine. When the problem occurs users already in Universe notice no problems. No unusual locks or performance problems have been noticed. The problem does not seem to be load related since it happens at apparently random times including times when very few users are logged in. We have been running 22.214.171.124 on DG/UX for several years and have never had the problem until the last couple of months. The only thing that may be suspicious is some changes we made to some kernel and UV config settings a few weeks prior to the first reported problem. The following changes were made: (KERNEL) SDELSIM 2048 TO 256 SEMOPM 100 TO 64 SEMUME 1024 TO 64 SHMMNI 4096 TO 2048 SEMMNI 4096 TO 2048 (UV CONFIG) MFILES 56 TO 200 T30FILE 8000 TO 200 (we have no dynamic files) FSEMNUM 101 TO 50 GSEMNUM 211 TO 97 GLTABSZ 150 TO 75 RLTABSZ 150 TO 75 MAXRLOCK 100 TO 74 Any help solving this puzzle would be greatly appreciated.
