TP Error: Version mismatch for shared memory

TP Error: Version mismatch for shared memory

TP Error: Version mismatch for shared memory

I'm doing some work on an old machine that is running HPUX 10.20, Oracle 733, MIMS 4.1 and TP 2o (told you it was old :))

Was trying to copy to a testing machine - and couldn't get the 2o to compile.  Had a tar of a 1r TP lying about so I thought to myself "Self, let's try to install that".

Got it installed and compiled.

Updated /etc/mincom_tp.tbl to point to the new $MINCOM_TP directory.

Then, when I try to run *anything* - be it msstrtup, tp_stat, tp_info, I get:

tp_info  041104 004218 [MINCOM TP Version 3.008/2O]
...................... Acode:  102 Version mismatch for shared memory

Somehow it's still thinking that it's running the 2o instead of the 1r and it's causing me no end of pain.

I removed the 2o directory so it's not even there any more.  Don't know where it's picking up to 2o version from.

Just for background, I did do a complete remake:

make CLEAN

Any closet TP experts out there?  I could really use a pointer on this one.  Only thing I can think of is that there's still a process running in memory (can't see anything when I do a "ps -ef | grep mimsp" but there may be some semaphore left over somewhere or something.

I know I'm missing something, probably something glaringly obvious, I just can't pinpoint it.

Anyone able to give me a pointer?



RE: TP Error: Version mismatch for shared memory

Two things you should check:

1) The mmap files have been removed.
rm *mmap*

2) Make sure the there is no HPUX10.sh file in the $MINENV_RUN/login directory.

RE: TP Error: Version mismatch for shared memory

Yeah, I had the rm *mmap* epiphany on Saturday evening before I'd seen this post.  That was the missing link in my puzzle.



RE: TP Error: Version mismatch for shared memory

Another thing you might need to do is run the msgenenv script to recreate .env file.
