Re: not able to login to hpux

Are you at the system console ?
Do you have root login capability from the console ?
You know, no one can work miracles from the little information you provided. You, not getting a prompt for password might have hundreds of different causes.

Hardware model ?
hpux version ?
method of connection ? (ssh ? telnet ?)
root or regular user ?
when did you first notice this symptom ?
when was the last major change (like patching or kernel modifications, new hardware addition, etc.) to your system and since then have you ever been able to login ?

Please log into the console as root.

check /var/adm/syslog/syslog.log

Re: not able to login to hpux

Is it just for your login? Or is it all logins? Any modifications made to the profiles? Any other changes made? You say you can login on console but not your workstation - have you tried a different workstation to login from?

Re: not able to login to hpux

Hi,

>>I am not able to ssh my server, but I can login to console<<

How about other methods like telnet, rlogin?

is the server busy with some tasks? You can check the server utilisation on console if you are able to login?

If you have issue with only ssh connection, restart the ssh service.
Best wishes,

Ganesh.

Re: not able to login to hpux

Is there any nfs disk mounted to this server. If the mount is failed, then it takes a long time to get password prompt too.
