User Managemtn Problems

In one of my Itanium Server I m facing below Issues.The system is trusted.

1. Login access is denied, when password is set is more then 8 characters.
2. User can login to the server, even when admin lock is applied for the id.
3. User id is not locked even after 3 consecutive login attempts failures.
4. When ‘passwd –f userid ‘ is applied and User changes password on 1st login then current login session exits, but User can login next time with changed password.


Here we have below setting in /etc/default/security file .

NUMBER_OF_LOGINS_ALLOWED=3
MIN_PASSWORD_LENGTH=8
PASSWORD_HISTORY_DEPTH=5
PASSWORD_MIN_UPPER_CASE_CHARS=1
PASSWORD_MIN_LOWER_CASE_CHARS=1
PASSWORD_MIN_DIGIT_CHARS=1
PASSWORD_MIN_SPECIAL_CHARS=1
PASSWORD_MAXDAYS=90
PASSWORD_WARNDAYS=7



Can some1 please explain how do i resolve this Issues.

Re: User Managemtn Problems

What is your HPUX version ? 11.23 or 11.31 ?
Are you up to date with your patching ?
Are the PAM modules installed correctly ?

Re: User Managemtn Problems

try this:
swlist -l product |grep -i pam

to see if you have Pluggable Authentication Module in your box.

Re: User Managemtn Problems

the problem is resolved. The aramater "UsePam no" in the sshd_config file was the 1 who created all the mess.

Changed it to yes. Restarted sshd .. Problem solved :)
