I have installed the latest HP/Compaq Tru64 patches
Beware of the /sbin/mount in patch OSFPATC0136901510 within: using
'mount -a' kills any local mountd with log message:
Sep 3 06:19:01 rome mountd: aborting: received a User defined signal 1
Note that mountd is started in /sbin/rc3.d/S19nfs but then
/sbin/rc3.d/S20nfsmount uses '/sbin/mount -a -v -t nfs'.
You may want to back out of that patch for now...
(The above is for Tru64 V5.1, the only version I have around.)
I have reported this to Compaq (but expect no speedy resolution). I am
puzzled: why patch /sbin/mount or /usr/bin/csh if they are not setuid?
