Solaris - doesnt open CDE - but will open xterm

 
When I connect to one of our sun solaris boxes, the CDE starts in Xmanager and then minimizes to the taskbar in Win2k. The CDE cannot be maximisedbut I can run an xterm window.

I can use CDE on our other sun boxes ? Any ideas?

Thanks

Please check if a "dtlogin" process is running on the Solaris.

# ps -ef | grep dt

If it isn't running, you can do it as a root user:

# dtconfig -e
# reboot

If a dtlogin process is already running, please check the messages in "/var/dt/Xerrors" file. Your pc's name might not known to the Solaris server. In that case, add your PC's name in the "/etc/hosts" file.

We hope this could help you.
