I am not aware of xmanager, but, this error usually pops when /etc/securettys doesn't contain the required entry. Check out the manpage of 'securettys' to learn more.

Re: I can't login in the tru64 server using the xmanager?


Is this the local graphics display, or a remote xdisplay ?

Please post the last 8 lines of the file /etc/securettys !@!

Re: I can't login in the tru64 server using the xmanager?

Hi,
Yes, root login is restricted by default from a remote "X-session", such as if you were trying to login as "root" using a XDMCP connection from a PC running eXceed, ReflectionsX, eXcursion, etc....

What you need to do is this:

1) Attempt to login twice and let it fail.

2) Next, telnet into the system as "root", and then look at the file: /var/adm/syslog.dated/current/auth.log

You will find a line or two that reads:
"Root" login refused from: {ip.address.com}

Copy down the exact ip address or the hostname shown in the line...

3) Next, change directory to /etc/ and vi the securettys file and at the very bottom at the ip.address.com or the hostname from the /var/adm/syslog.dated/current/auth.log file and tack a :0 on to the end...

Your securettys file should look something like this now:


#
#
/dev/console
local:0
:0
ptys
alf306346-w2k.americas.cpqcorp.net:0

4)Now, save the file, and exit the editor.

5) No reboot required, simply attempt to login again as root using your "xmanager".


However, if it is failing to allow you to login as root and you are on the graphics console, then make sure that you also have in your securettys file:

:0
and
local:0
as shown above.

If you have these entries in your file already, then take a closer look at the auth.log file I mentioned before...

You can also try renaming the securettys file out of the way and attempt to login with out it. (Not recommended) but it should let anyone in if it is not found on the system.

Let us know what you find out...
