  • 1. Hyper-threading technology on HPUX
    Dear all I am new to HPUX. May I know if HPUX has any hyper-threading (or alike) technologies? Any good reference sites? Is there any command that can be used to display the hyper-threading type/status on a HPUX machine? Thanks Tracy

  • 3. read() retries on a faulty SCSI disk
    Hi I am curious about knowing how scsi disk drivers behave with a faulty disk. I am having a faulty disk and "read()" system call on that disk will cause 45 retries (about 10 - 15 minutes) before it return with a failure. Nevertheless, I got to know from the error policy of SCSI services stack for HP-UX pre 11.31 release, that this is the expected behavior of read() on a faulty disk, ie read() retries 45 times before reporting error, and that pass-through IO's are not retried. ( Am I correct ?). I am working on 11.11 and 11.23 OS. I am eager to know an alternative which I can use instead of read(), to get notified of error condition without a delay. I cannot use "dd" to identify this as it hangs on a bad disk making infinite retries. Please oblige by providing pointers to the same.
  • 4. Nonblocking socket
    Hi, Following the documentation on hp-ux I set my socket as non-blocking: int nFlags; nFlags = fcntl(ListenSocket, F_GETFL, 0); nFlags |= O_NONBLOCK; if (fcntl(ListenSocket, F_SETFL, nFlags) == -1) return false; This actually to work fine but what I don't understand is that accept() returns errno 2 (ENOENT) instead of EAGAIN or EWOULDBLOCK like the documentation says. Can anyone shed some light on this? The error code that I get is not even mentioned in the manpage for accept. Thanks in advance. -- Henrik

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.
