Ok, this is what I followed: 

And it says absolutely nothing about running anything other than 
vda-preserve and vda-config.

Anyway, that was not the problem. Well, it apparently became a problem 
when I ran "uttsadm -r" but now that I ran "uttscadm -c -g srwcgrp" those 
srds access denied errors went away and I started getting uttsc syntax 
errors in the log again. So apparently that "SRDS access denied"-problem 
prevented the uttsc from actually running but now that's gone and the 
original problem re-surfaced.

SO, any other ideas? Current situation:

- NOT bypassing Desktop Login works, after "logging in" with a username 
(no password needed, username can be anything, I guess this is because it 
is not really forwarded/used anywhere) brings me the desktop the DTU is 
assigned to
- Bypassing the Desktop Login and trying to go directly to the desktop 
causes uttsc syntax error messages in /var/opt/SUNWut/log/messages and 
DTUs keep recycling going nowhere

Nope, not really..

Yes, definitely!


PS. Sadly, a third blackout day went by with ZERO communication from 
Oracle Support, for which we pay quite dearly...
