NFS HANG FIX ON HP-UX


In an NFS environment (Hp-UX based), sometimes no user is
able to log-in when home directories are mounted using automounter).
As user validation occurs, the user .profile is executed but no shell
prompt appears unless the user presses CTRL-C.

The Solution to this is to kill the portmap & inetd and restart
the two daemons. The problem will then be sorted out.
