  • 1. HP 9000 K Series Console RS232 Port Question
    Hi Folks, I'm trying to check out a used HP 9000 K series system. I don't have a terminal to connect to the Console port, so I'd like to connect the serial port of a notebook computer running a terminal emulator program. Has anyone done this before? I need to find out what settings to use. What baud rate, parity, and word length should I use? How many nulls? Also, this requires a null modem cable, right? Thanks for any help! -dreq
  • 2. Partial paths in audit log
    Hi, I'm trying to write an application that tracks file changes (create, delete, modify, rename) on HP-UX using the audit log. Everything works fine except that the audit log sometimes has partial paths for the file path (they are relative to the current working directory of the process rather than being absolute). This is useless since I don't know what the working directory of the process was at the time the event was generated. I guess this is because audit just logs the arguments to the related system call (open, rename, etc.), but audit on Solaris (which is very similar to HP-UX audit) always has the absolute file path. Is there any way to configure HP-UX audit to include the full path or some way to figure out the full path when parsing the audit log? Any help greatly appreciated! Thanks, Todd
  • 3. Uninstalling a DLKM without unloading it
    Hi All, Is anyone aware of a method for removing a DLKM without also unloading it? What I'm looking for is a way of removing the module from all the kernel directories etc but leaving the DLKM loaded unless the user specifically wants to remove it (or insuring that it is no longer around after a reboot). Basically I need something like kminstall -d without the unload. Any ideas? Thanks, Shaun

    I don't know your hardware but with AutoRaid that I use performance is may be 4 times slower than a single scsi disk. Alain.

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.
