Re: Trusted system

Check the .profile for the operator user. You'll prolly find an invalid stty entry, or possibly TERM= something wrong.

Re: Trusted system

Hi,

You haven't mentioned whether you are running 10.20 or 11.x - it's VITAL to have the latest trusted patches on a 10.20 system.

A possibility is that / is full and hence the /tcb cannot be updated. Check this first.

A getprpw of this user may be useful to see if there any locks against them.

Untrusting and retrusting this system will (I believe) fix the problem, but you may have password ageing and other tcb information that will be lost. Again ensure you have the latest trusted patches before attempting this.

regards,

Darren.

Calm down. It's only ones and zeros...

Re: Trusted system

hi
and the root file system is ok.
i created a backup menu using C language and i added the program to the .profile to launch the menu when the operator logs into the system.

the operator is used to log onto the system every day. and this error message appeared yesterday for the first time. i fixed this problem by changing the /etc/passwd
by changing the /usr/bin/sh to /home/operator/menu.
but i need to know the reason, to avoid any future error.
by the way:HP-UX 10.20 "trusted and clustere system".

Re: Trusted system

Only valid shells found in /etc/shell are allowed. So that other has to go.

And root can only be the POSIX shell or big problems.

Re: Trusted system

That's /etc/shells.

For trusted systems use:

...authck -p...

...to check your trusted systems protected password file.
