Telnet root login - terminal is disabled


I have a Tru64UNIX v5.1B system. From time to time when I try and login as root using Telnet I get the message:-

Terminal is disabled -- See Account Administrator

I then login as root using ssh.

I can then login as root again using telnet.

Any suggestions on what could cause this would be appreciated.

Re: Telnet root login - terminal is disabled

Probably you have C2 security enabled, and the threshold for failed logins on that individual pseudo-tty is being/has been exceeded.

You might try setting the threshold to a higher value.
