KB-9631: DA gives emergency shell for bash in Suite 2017-1 on HPUX

Problem: After installing Suite 2017-1 with HP-UX 11.23 which has never been installed with DA previously, attempt to login as root (since root's shell is /sbin/bash). But it resulted in an emergency shell.

Cause:  /sbin/cdax/bash does not exist. 

Workaround: If users were to assign /sbin/bash to root before installing DA, it should also be added it to /etc/shells. Or copy /sbin/cdax/sh to /sbin/cdax/bash.

It may be required to enter single user mode to achieve this process.
