While I haven't done this with cfservd yet, you could wrap cfservd in
/etc/inittab with the 'respawn' option so that it will respawn the
process if it ever dies. Anyone try this with cfservd? Any problems with

Hi Patrice,
I have the same problem. My cfservd dies very often.
I tried (for the first time) "cfservd -d 2" on cfengine master:

cfservd Debug mode: running in foreground
Appending [aix]
Host IPs from NAT which we don't verify :
IP: xx.xx.82.215
Dynamical Host IPs (e.g. DHCP) whose bindings could vary over time :
Address family was 0
cfmaster::Software failure in sockaddr_ntop

and cfservd doesn't start.
If I start cfservd without options it works and ca. 800 clients contact
the cfengine master every half an hour. But as mentioned above the
cfservd dies very often (ca. every other day) without any hints in
How can I analyze it ?
Does anybody have an idea ? Is it an compiling problem ?
basic conditions:
AIX 4.3.3
cfengine v2.0.4
