  • 2. How to REALLY delete data
    Hi, I have the chance to aquire (for free) a nicely equiped D320 with quite some storage from one of our customers. The customer is a credit card company and the only reqirement from the customer is to reliably delete all data from the data disks (OS is separate and contains no relevant data). How can I delete the data so it cannot be reconstructed in any way whatsoever? dd zeroes all over? Format? I guess this isn't even HPUX specific, but since this is a HP machine .. Thanks, /Gerold

  • 5. DDS3 Tape drive not compressing?
    Hi, I have a HPUX 11.11 box with a C1537A tape drive which is I believe DDSIII. Trouble is I can't see that hardware compresssion is working. Using omniback the media look like DDSIII as the capacity is about 12Gb: $omnimm -media_info 581490 -detail ... Total blocks : 11743616 (or is this the compressed capacity being reported? No that doesn't make much sense) Trouble is when I write 12Gb (added up totals from bdf) it's too much - thus there is no compression going on it seems. I am using the compression device: /dev/rmt/c1t0d0BEST which should be the right one. So I am a bit stumped. Any clues? Thanks, Adam.

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.
