PRNG is not seeded

Hi Admins,

SSH is not getting started , it kicks out PRNG is not seeded on HPUX 11.31.

/dev/ranodm and urandom file already exist.

Re: PRNG is not seeded

What SSH build are you using? Consider using the HP Secure Shell package - it looks like your SSH build is trying to access the prngd daemon, when it should be using /dev/random instead.

Shalom,

There could be a problem with /dev/random and urandom

lsdev

Take a look at the output, compare it to a working system. A discrepancy would be important in this issue.
