  • 1. HPUX Porting Center Down?
    I know the UK mirror is up. But anyone know why both US sites have been down. Have they stopped hosting? I was able to hit one the other day but it was sporadic at best and very slow. Bart
  • 2. snapshot - onlineJFS - rsync
    Hi, We are planning to use snapshots on HP-UX 11.0 using OnlineJFS. Currently we use rsync to synchronize servers. I read that one can only user tar, cpio and vxdump to use these snapshots. Question: can one use rsync on snapshot volumes ? Thanks, INCS

  • 4. Adding a SCSI host adapter and tape drive
    I have an A180 running HP-UX 11.00 that I want to install a 4mm tape drive on. I have access to an external Seagate drive which came with a PCI SCSI host controller. My intent was to connect the tape drive to the A180's external SE SCSI bus, but the tape drive has a HD68 connector. So, in order to make this work without any additional parts, I would like to use the SCSI card that came with the tape drive. The SCSI adapter is an Adaptec 39160. I've never installed a card into a HP-UX machine. I've looked for information and for HP-UX specific drivers for this card, but haven't found either. Where can I find some information on how to install this SCSI card and get it working? Thanks, Thad
  • 5. Return system to un-trusted state
    Hi. I accidentally configured one of my 11i servers into a trusted system. Since I'd like to have NIS on that server, I'm not too happy with my previous decision ;) How do I make my system "untrusted" again? Thanks, Alexander Skwar -- panic("aha1740.c"); /* Goodbye */ 2.2.16 /usr/src/linux/drivers/scsi/aha1740.c

root permission denied(ssh) on hpux

Hi guys,

HPUX B.11.31

screenshot as follows:
ssh host
The authenticity of host 'host' can't be established.
RSA key fingerprint is 75:64:51:7a:ad:
Are you sure you want to continue connecting (yes/no)? yes
Warning: Permanently added 'host...' (RSA) to the list of known hosts.
root@host's password:
Permission denied, please try again.

some investigation below

# grep "^[^#]" /opt/ssh/etc/sshd_config
Protocol 2,1
KerberosAuthentication no
UsePAM no
X11Forwarding no
Subsystem       sftp    /opt/ssh/libexec/sftp-server

refer to sshd_config man pages, the default of PasswordAuthentication
and PermitRootLogin is yes. So i think the sshd_config file is ok.
(another box with the same sshd_config file is ok)

if i append the public key files to /.ssh/authorized_keys, i can login
with root . But it's with PubkeyAuthentication.

My issue is why root permission denied with PasswordAuthentication

any suggestion is welcome. Thanks in advance.

What does your /etc/securetty file look like?

Similar Threads:

1.cannot rename, permission denied

2.automount permission denied...

Hi All,

I've got HP-UX11.11 and configured /etc/auto_master with:

/net -hosts -nosuid,soft

I've got AUTOFS=1 in nfsconf.

When I cd /tmp_mnt/<hostname>/<share dir>

I see nothing.  On my aix and solaris machines, I see the shared
directory fine (also through automount).

Can anyone tell me what I've done wrong in my configuration on HP? This
is causing me grief.

Thank you much.  Sincerely, George

3.Permission Denied on NFS Mount


On the host containing the filesystem, I added a line to
/etc/exports as follows:

/<fs> -root=<client>, access=<client>

I executed /usr/sbin/exportfs -a

On the client, I added a line in /etc/fstab as follows;

<host>:/<fs> /<fs> nfs defaults 0 0

On the client, I executed 'mount <serverhost>:/<fs>', but
HP-UX (v11.11) responded with 'Permission Denied'.

I am root in both client and server. Root has full permission
on the filesystems. (I set the permissions to 777).

I can telnet, ftp, etc.. from the server to the client, and

What could be causing the 'Permission Denied' response?

4.Error from cron - sh: Mail: Execute permission denied

I got the following error when trying to run a command from cron:
sh: Mail: Execute permission denied

The solution:  I had one too many asterisks in my crontab.  Duh!

Just thought I'd post this here so if anyone else searches for this
error they will find it.
