Utmp entry problems?

Utmp entry problems?

Post by matthew c. me » Sun, 02 Apr 1995 04:00:00

        I just installed Solaris 2.4 on a Sparcserver 1000 with 4 cpus today,
and also applied all of the recommended patches.  I'm seeing an odd problem -
when someone logs in via rlogin or telnet, they show up as logged in when you
finger at the host, however, when someone logs in using an xterm, shelltool, or
cmdtool, they don't show up as being logged in; however, they do show up as
being logged in as reported by the w command.  Here's an example:


 12:06am  up  3:23,  0 users,  load average: 0.09, 0.05, 0.11

sundar   pts/0         9:34pm     1      9      9  rlogin Malamute.cs.vt.edu -l
sundar   pts/1         9:28pm    55      3         tcsh
sundar   pts/2         9:34pm     2      7      7  rlogin Malamute.cs.vt.edu -l
mmead    pts/3        12:06am                      w

No one logged on

        Has anyone else seen this behavior?  Does anyone know of a fix?

1. Problems login in: ODT 5.02 - "No utmp entry" : STUCK.

We had the root filesystem fill up and after the cleanup and reboot we
can't get a login other than via scologin.

The error msg: No utmp entry. You must exec "Login" from the lowest level

When I've had this error before it has always recified itself after a
couple of login attempts... but not this time.

Stuck and stumped. TIA for help/suggestions.
