statd -a can't get ip configuration

Hi, I am new in AIX. Here is a problem I have now:

I've got an error in console saying: "statd -a can't get ip configuration: A file or directory in the path name does not exist."

How can I troubleshoot the issue? Where should a get start from?

Thank you in advance!

---------- Post updated at 09:23 PM ---------- Previous update was at 08:12 PM ----------

I stopped statd using this command:

# stopsrc -s rpc.statd

The error is gone now. I still like to know which configuration file statd was trying to read but failed.

I do not understand what kind of IP configuration you believe to find but maybe this helps ...

from the manpages:

statd Daemon
Provides crash and recovery functions for the locking services on NFS.

/usr/sbin/rpc.statd [-t threads]

The statd daemon interacts with the lockd daemon to provide crash and recovery functions for the locking services on Network File System (NFS). The statd daemon should always be started before the lockd daemon.

The statd daemon is started and stopped by the following SRC commands:

startsrc -s rpc.statd
stopsrc -s rpc.statd

The status monitor maintains information on the location of connections as well as the status in the /var/statmon/sm directory, the /var/statmon/sm.bak directory, and the /var/statmon/state file. When restarted, the statd daemon queries these files and tries to reestablish the connection it had prior to termination. To restart the statd daemon, and subsequently the lockd daemon, without prior knowledge of existing locks or status, delete these files before restarting the statd daemon.

Kind regards
