Re: Login issue

Hi shreejith,

does this happen only for your login?
what about root login? and through console?


ssh or rlogin or telnet ?

Re: Login issue

do you have root login , if yes can you try login with root and if you are able to do login with root than please send the following details

cat /etc/passwd | grep user name

copy of /etc/shells

copy of .profile of the user

Re: Login issue

Hi,

Try to login the system with failsafe root session.

Check following files;
/etc/hosts
/sbin/rc.config.d/netconf
/etc/nsswitch.conf
/etc/resolv.cond (dns)

Look for typos incorrect hostnames incorrect ip's

Check if both commands have the same output

# ping ip_of_J6750
# ping name_of_J6750

You could also try to run the dr_dt script and post the errors.

Regards,
Robert-Jan

Re: Login issue

How are you connecting to the box through ssh or telnet/rlogin etc.
If you are using putty make sure that it is supporting the ssh version that on the box.

check .profile environment values for DISPLAY & Term

Re: Login issue

I am able to do telnet and ssh with all the user id including root.But i am unable to login in machine using any account only i can see mouse pointer.

NIS is working fine and all the other services are working fine.

Is there any issue with some files?

I am not getting you when you mention any account.
If you are facing problem with your account only then check for .profile or try it copy from some other users accout.

>i am unable to login in machine using any account only i can see mouse pointer.

so this is a workstation with CDE installed. Look for the ~/.dtlogin file and some X-specific settings. For CDE settings, see /etc/dt/config/Xconfig. I think there is a misconfiguration regarding your graphical frontend.

You could also try remotely (via ssh) the following:

# /sbin/init.d/dtlogin.rc stop

Can you log in locally after you stop CDE?
