Question CDE Issue In Solaris 10

Hi All,
I have solaris 10 on X86 and I need to connect this through X-Manager or similar software.

I have googled a lot and tried the following :

root@sol10x86 # ps -ef |grep dtlogin
    root  1825  4718   0 13:38:50 pts/1       0:00 grep dtlogin
root@sol10x86 # svcs cde-login
STATE          STIME    FMRI
maintenance    13:34:22 svc:/application/graphical-login/cde-login:default
root@sol10x86 # svcadm clear cde-login
root@sol10x86 # svcs cde-login
STATE          STIME    FMRI
online         13:39:23 svc:/application/graphical-login/cde-login:default
root@sol10x86 #
root@sol10x86 # netservices limited
restarting syslogd
restarting sendmail
restarting wbem
dtlogin needs to be restarted. Restart now? [Y] y
restarting dtlogin
root@sol10x86 # ps -ef | grep dtlogin
    root  3338  2877   0 13:39:33 ?           0:00 /usr/dt/bin/dtlogin -daemon
    root  3773  4718   0 13:39:43 pts/1       0:00 grep dtlogin
    root  2877     1   0 13:39:23 ?           0:00 /usr/dt/bin/dtlogin -daemon
root@sol10x86 # svccfg -s svc:/application/x11/x11-server setprop options/tcp_listen=true
root@sol10x86 # svccfg -s svc:/application/graphical-login/cde-login setprop dtlogin/args=\"\"
root@sol10x86 # svcadm refresh svc:/application/graphical-login/cde-login:default;
root@sol10x86 # svcprop -p dtlogin svc:/application/graphical-login/cde-login:default
dtlogin/debug_level count 0
dtlogin/debug_log astring ""
dtlogin/value_authorization astring solaris.smf.value.cde.login
dtlogin/args astring ""
root@sol10x86 # netservices open
restarting syslogd
restarting sendmail
restarting wbem
root@sol10x86 # svcadm restart cde-login
root@sol10x86 # ps -ef |grep dtlogin
    root  5337  4718   0 13:40:29 pts/1       0:00 grep dtlogin
    root  5302  2877   0 13:40:28 ?           0:00 /usr/dt/bin/dtlogin -daemon
    root  2877     1   0 13:39:23 ?           0:00 /usr/dt/bin/dtlogin -daemon

After sometime, following error appears in /var/svc/log/application-graphical-login-cde-login:default.log and svc:/application/graphical-login/cde-login:default goes into maintenance phase and dtlogin is no more running.

[ Apr  9 13:40:42 Method or service exit timed out.  Killing contract 241 ]
[ Apr  9 13:40:43 Rereading configuration. ]
[ Apr  9 13:40:43 Rereading configuration. ]

Please help me resolving the issue.

Hi pintu asmin,

You want to create a user account solaris 10 on X86 and than see if you can connect this through X-Manager or similar software.

I hope this is of help.

X is always such a pain...

I'm afraid I don't know how to fix your problem exactly, though I have some ideas!

Make sure your DNS is all set up correctly and operating nicely, especially between the server and the client machine. If you are not using DNS, /etc/host needs to be configured.

Also, I would investigate that contract, it seems like cde-login is waiting on some other service:

CDE in Solaris

I was wondering, if I boot up a Solaris box and the CDE does not come up by default when I log in, does that mean that the box has a GUI at all? If that is the case, where can I download CDE from? I am accustomed to RedHat and Windows, so unfortunately Solaris throws me off a little bit. (1 Reply)
