Can't rewrite protected password entry for user XXX

Hi,

I have a 11.23 server on a sd64 npar, that is giving me this error on the syslog:

Can't rewrite protected password entry for user oracle

I had seen this error before when the / root fs was full, but it's not the case now.

[root]#bdf
File System Mbytes Used Avail %Used Mounted on
/dev/vg00/lvol3 1024 299 719 29% /

I have compared all the perms on the /tcb/file/auth/o dirs and files with another server and they look ok.

pwck -l | -s (didn't find anything strange

I know you can fix this problem, doing a userdel - useradd of the oracle user, but this is a production server.

Any idea what can fix this problem, without having to stop the db and recreate the user ?


Thnx!.

Fixed.

in /tcb/files/auth/o
mv oracle oracle_old
cp oracle_old oracle
rm oracle_old
