  • 1. encryption format of Hp-ux 11iv2 passwords

  • 2. Confused: Single User Mode and LVM Maint. mode
    Good Evening: I am relativly new to HPUX and was wondering if someone can tell me: ->What exactly happens in Single user mode? (I have read the manpage on hpux (1M) and all I can find is that in signle user mode root volume is mounted). Is there anything else. ->What about LVM maintainence mode? (Again manpage says that its single user mode + LVM t/s mode to do lvm maintainence). The reason I ask is, (for example), I need to extend " /usr", I go to single user mode and give /sbin/lvextend command to extend it, and all works out good. However, according to my LVM readings, a Volume Group needs to be "de-activated" before any operation can be performed on it. Now, since VG00 is activated (root volume mounted is on VG00), how can I still do my lvextend on LV belonging to VG00, without deactivating it? (since VG00 can't be deactivated in either Single Use mode or LVM maint. mode)? A little confused (or more likely missing something)! Thank u for your advise.
  • 3. Conflicting documentation for system authentication
    Hello, The documentataion for prpwd(4) states that 'u_max_llogin' is a valid entry and stands for "This value, in secconds, is the maximum time allowed between logins...". However, modifying the user from SAM or using usermod updates the database file with 'u_llogin' entry. The documentation of modprpw also states that this is a valid entry. Could some one tell me if 'u_max_llogin' is a valid entry or documenation of prpwd(4) has a typo? or both ('u_max_llogin' and 'u_llogin') are correct entries? Regards, Datta.
  • 4. easy ? for HP
    hey all, have a 9000 series 735 workstation. question is regarding harddrive capacity. the original documentation has a 2 GB limit. my question is two-fold : 1) will hp-ux 10.20 or newer support larger than 2GB harddrives? 2)similarly, with a debian-hppa, the harddrive allowances? tks scott

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.
