KB-0541: Login via ftp fails on AIX

Authentication Service ,  

12 April,16 at 11:43 AM


User login fails for ftp on AIX even though the user's shell is added to /etc/shells.


AIX requires the user's shell to be added as a valid shell to
/etc/security/login.cfg instead of /etc/shells.


Please add the user's shell to the "shells" attribute in login.cfg. The user should now be able to login via ftp.
