Profile user file (edit)

hi,
i have a question.

The server hp-ux 11.23 has installed SAP. the user SAP in the S.O is (SID)adm.

when the user (SID)adm login in the S.O, show the message

TERM = (hp)

I understand that the file profile is .profile in the home directory, but in the home directory the user exist files: .profile, .profile1. profile2.

which file edit?

anex the message.

Hi:

The standard HP-UX Posix shell (or for that matter, the Korn shell) use '${HOME}/.profile'. The '.profile1' and '.profile2' files must be backup copies of some kind.

This most likely comes /etc/profile:
eval `ttytype -s -a`

Hi (again) Eli:

What is it (exactly) that you want to do?

If you are running a terminal emulator, the query of the terminal (with 'ttytype') may not be delivering a value and hence the default setting is "hp". You can always hard set the terminal type (usually to something like 'vt100' or 'vt220' if that helps.

Describing your problem and your objective would be helpful.

Regards!

Eli,

/etc/profile is a basic environment. In your query you mentioned "user", so i am assuming the startup script is for the user's shell and this is done on .profile which ovverides the basic environment. And it is extremely interesting to see a .profile1 and .profile2!!

Hi,
the problem was solved. In the home directory, edit .login

comment the next line:

#eval `tset -s -Q -m ':?hp' `
