  • 1. long hostname question
    Have an 8400 that has a hostname of more that is 9 chars. In 11i at least, this is a no-no, but that's besided the point, as the box is in production and i have to "deal with it." Haven't noticed too many difficulties execpt I have the oracle folks complaining that 'uname -n' gives the truncated hostname. I have told them to use 'hostname' but it's some script they have the same on all boxes. So, anyway to get uname -n to report the hostname? Thanks
  • 2. Respawning syslogd
    Does anybody know why the default HP-UX install starts up the syslogd using the /sbin/init.d/syslogd script rather than as a respawning process from the /etc/inittab file? It would seem like this is the one process you want to have stay up when your system is getting whacked with a problem. Thanks.
  • 3. hp-terminals on linux
    Hi, is there anybody out there using hp-terminals (hpterm emulation our hw-terminals) together with ncurses on linux. If so please give me feedback or just another newsgroup if I'm off topic here. We do have problems with video enhancements. On HP systems anything works fine but they are using a different version of curses. If there is sombody using such a configuration I will discuss the problem with him in details. Thanks in advance, Bernd Rieke

  • 5. sending email attachment via command line on HPUX11 to an external address
    Hello I am having trouble with sending an email attachment from the command line to an external email address(one which is not work related). When the email is sent the external recipient gets it but the attachment is in the main body of the email. Yet when the email is sent to an internal company address the attachment is in the correct place. This is what I have used ux2dos report.csv | uuencode report_a.csv | mailx -m -s "report info" XXXX@XXXXX.COM Any ideas? Regards Stevan

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.
