If the shell isn't in the /etc/shells file, it's not recognized as valid
login shell.
Just enter the path to the executable. This is my /etc/shells:





1. register valid shells in solaris 2.4 at?

When I try to set a users shell to bash, they cannot login with ftp due
to the bash shell not beingg registered.  I'm familiar with /etc/shells
location but have been unable to locate where the location is on solaris 2.4.
I looked in the FAQ but no go.  Any clues much appreciated.
