Re: New users are not able to login in 11.11i

Hi Tor ,

The Issue facing is ..

1.New Users are not able to get prompt.
2. users are getting created and able to switch to their shell using su - username from root login
3. it is getting fetched in syslog saying user logged in via ssh2
4. in # who command output user is not showing as logged in
5. old users are also having same issue if i am recreating them with old home directory.(userdel without -r option)
6. All existing users are logging in without any time delay.

Think this will help you out..!

Thanks for Time.

>> 1.New Users are not able to get prompt.

Have you cross checked the .profile of old user and new user?

When you do su - username, it bypass .profile.

Re: New users are not able to login in 11.11i

30-45 min is very huge delay.

Are you running out of space? Check the space in / and /var. May be you can clear the wtmp logs, it may be very huge.

Are you having problems like proc table nearly full ?
