  • 1. Having problems with NIS and SAM I am.
    Forgive me if the above bad pun is overdone in this group. I couldn't resist. Specifically, I can't seem to get my A series HP-9000 running 11.11i to bind to my NIS server as a client. As soon as I try to use the configuration utility within SAM to configure NIS, an error dialog box pops up that says: "THIS VERSION OF SAM DOES NOT SUPPORT IPV6 NIS CONFIGURATION". Now, if I acknowledge the message, it let's me on into the utility, but I can never get a configuration that takes. I don't know how to prove or disprove whether I'm running IP v6, but I didn't intend to, and would shut if off if I was, and knew how. I'm sure you can tell, but I'm a little new with HP-UX, so go easy on me now. Thanks in advance for all offers of help. Thx. Jeff.
  • 2. Anyone using SANnet II FC on N-Class...
    using Private_Loop? I am using a L2000 with a A5158A FC adapter connected to a Dothill SANnet II but when connected via Private_Loop I cannot see any LUN's. If I attach via a brocade switch in point to point mode I can see all available LUN's. Anyone experienced similar problems?
  • 3. gnu grep -a -b. sed / awk alternatives
    since it's not available in hpux - whats the best way to extract a range of lines before and after a string. Thanks.
  • 4. awk differences hpux/Solaris
    I'm trying to migrate a script from Solaris 8 to hpux. The line I'm having trouble with is as follows: Solaris: tmp=$$ ps -e -o ppid -o sid -o pid |awk $2'==$1 && $3!='$$' {print "'${3-ZZZZZZZZ}'",$1,$2,$3}'>pids.all.$tmp This creates the pids* file as expected. Migrating it to HP-UX, I tried the following: HP-UX: tmp=$$ UNIX95= ps -e -o ppid -o sid -o pid |awk $2'==$1 && $3!='$$' {print "'${3-ZZZZZZZZ}'",$1,$2,$3}'>pids.all.$tmp But no such pids file is o/p. Is there any reason for the differing behavour? Any advice/info greatly appreciated $2 is the process ID of the calling shell
  • 5. HP-UX terminfo and problems with "screen"
    I'm running 11i v1.6 (B.11.22) on a HP i2000 Itanium system. Since I needed virtual consoles I downloaded the precompiled freeware utility "screen" from the HP-UX Porting Center and installed it. As far as good but now when I want to start screen on the local console (VGA, textmode only on i2000s) I get the following error: #screen Cannot find terminfo entry for TE_x80y24 # I also logged in in a vt100 telnet session and tried to run screen but also got the above failure: #screen Cannot find terminfo entry for t100 # The entries for ITE_x80y24 and vt100 are in "/usr/lib/terminfo/I/ITE_x80y24" and "/usr/lib/terminfo/v/vt100", and the environment variables TERM and _TERM are also set to the correct values. Other text mode programs incl. SAM work fine, only screen refuses to work. Anyone knows how to fix that? Benjamin

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.
