Verifying the portmap daemon is enabled for automatic start on AIX systems
For AIX systems, enabling the portmap daemon for automatic start is a simple process.
To verify that the portmap daemon starts automatically when the system unit is started:
- Log on as root and edit the /etc/rc.tcpip file.
- Locate the portmap entry, which contains
- Make sure that the
#does not start the beginning of the portmap entry. (The # in column 1 indicates that the line is only a comment and is not to be run.)
- Save and close the file.

To start portmap from a command line:
# startsrc -s portmap
