Failed to generate 64 from prng

When issuing the command cmquerycl and get this error message:

Error 231 (Software caused connection abort) performing security validation.  Please verify that identd is running properly

Also in the syslog this error appears:

Unable to open /dev/urandom (No such device).
cmclconfd[3377]: Failed to generate 64 from prng.

This error is produce by the random number generator, documented at: http://docs.hp.com/en/B3921-60631/random.7.html

To fix this, load the "rng" kernel module.

On HPUX 11.23, use:

kcmodule rng=loaded

Check that is loaded. This need to relink and reboot the server.

# kcmodule rng

Module State Cause Notes rng loaded explicit loadable, unloadable
