root login error

As of recently, most of my HP-UX servers occasionally have this error when I try to su to root via SSH: "Account is disabled - see Account Administrator". I know I type the correct password. I have to login as root on the console and then it is fine. I checked the /tcb/files/auth/r/root file and it looks normal. What causes this?

You might get better answers faster in an
