  • 1. high load average while doing nothing
    I have here a c3700 with a fresh install of HPUX 11.11 (from CDs dated September, 2005) with various patches installed in order to run CATIA V5. When completely idle, the load average hovers around 2-5. Running "top" shows the following top processes: TTY PID USERNAME PRI NI SIZE RES STATE TIME %WCPU %CPU COMMAND ? 31 root 152 20 0K 1088K run 0:00 0.10 0.10 vxfsd ? 1643 root 152 20 3924K 6280K run 0:03 0.08 0.08 cimserver pts/ta 4676 root 178 20 5140K 724K run 0:00 0.32 0.08 top There is also disk activity every second or two. fsck doesn't report any errors, however. My first inclination is that the disk is going bad, but I'm much more familiar with Suns than HPs, and am hoping that it's just something silly that I have overlooked. Thanks.
  • 2. PPA Name
    I've got a unique situation in a unix test environment. I assign a default IP address to an array of lan cards using ifconfig via a script file. The object being that the OS doesn't need to be customized. Usually card instance 0 is lan0, 1 is lan1, etc. but I've got a system that developed a hole in the numbering where instance 2 became lan8 and 3 became lan9, etc. I'm hoping sombody can tell me how this would happen and more importantly, how can I reassign consistant name/numbering. I would appreciate all answers and insights. Thanks Kyle J.
  • 3. How do i increase tmp file space?
    Hi, The volume group does not have much space. I increased the space for that logical volume to 400M. But if i need to add more temp space, how is that done? Can i create another logical volume mounted on /tmp1 ? TIA
  • 4. XEmacs
    I have found a version for HP-UX 11.00. Where I have v11.11. Is that an okay match? I am just starting with HP/UX and not sure how the versioning of the OS works. Robert

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.
