Answers were right on the spot!

Original question:

I get this message on the console of a SUN 3/260 running SunOS 4.0.3

        rpc.statd: cannot talk to statd at

It comes on the console every 15 secs or so.
The computer serves as a mailhost for several other Suns. Running
NFS only.

Anyone have a clue?

Please answer by email to


The answeres suggested that were put in /etc/sm by accident.
After stopping rpc.statd, removing /etc/sm/, and starting
rpc.statd again, everything is ok.

Thanks to
