I installed AIX 5.1 on an rs6000 b50 (new install, default packages)
using a WinNT PC terminal emulation (HyperTerm, VT100).
After a successful install I receive the console login screen.
I can enter root (or any other name) but it does not log me in and
prompt for a password.
Instead it keeps returning to the login prompt without any error
message or password
When I access the system in maintenance mode everything looks ok, i.e.
root is allowed to login via all ttys,
root account is _not_ expired, locked etc.
the number of logins (or licenses) is set to 100
Any ideas how to fix this problem?
