KB-9250: Local users in user.ignore but are unable to login on an HPUX 11.11 server

29 September,17 at 03:01 PM

Local users have been added to the user.ignore file but are unable to log into the HPUX 11.11 server. They can log into all other servers without an issue.


This is caused by the version of ssh that comes with the older versions of HPUX. The pam.conf shows that there aren't any authentication/session/password entries for the  sshd service.

Add the following lines to the /etc/pam.conf file:

sshd	 auth sufficient 	/usr/lib/security/libpam_unix.1  use_first_pass debug
sshd	 auth required 	/usr/lib/security/libpam_ldap.1 use_first_pass
sshd	 session sufficient	/usr/lib/security/libpam_unix.1 
sshd	 session required	/usr/lib/security/libpam_ldap.1
sshd	 password sufficient	/usr/lib/security/libpam_unix.1  try_first_pass
sshd	 password required	/usr/lib/security/libpam_ldap.1 use_first_pass 

and the restart the sshd service.
