Problem with SCO sub-system login

Problem with SCO sub-system login

Post by Matthew Clap » Sat, 08 Jul 1995 04:00:00



Hello:

        We have had a sub-system on our SCO UNIX box (Ver: 3.2.4.0) with
the entry in /etc/passwd:

        subsystem:x:123:50:Sub system environment:/subsystem:*

        Up to now, it has worked perfectly ... for 3 years matter of fact.
Now, when I type 'subsystem' from the login prompt, and get the alternate
login, I type my login name and password, and get the message:

        No utmp entry.  You must exec "login" from the lowest level "sh".

        Any solutions?  The RTFM has not been a help at all.

This has worked for me using 4.2 I do not know if this will have the
same directory structure as 4.0 or the same effect.
Try bringing the system into single user mode and then run :
mv /etc/utmp /tmp       {Move the current file into a safe place}
Quote:>/etc/umtp           {Create a blank 0 length file}

/tcb/bin/integrity -e   {Check all your system files for wrong
owners..}
/etc/fixmog             (Fix the system files with wrong owners...}
exit                    {Leave single user mode}
CTRL-D                  {Start Multi user mode}

It sounds like your utmp file has been corrupted perhaps your root
filesystem was 100% full at some time over the past 3 years?

1. Sub-sub-sub-sub-sub subdomains?

No, it's not a typo.

My question is quite simple: I've read on how to set up subdomains on
apache using the wildcard mask, but what about subdomains several
levels deep?

Do I need to create one DNS entry for every "subdomain level" so to
speak?.

Lets say I currently have... whatever... "cool.com" (then I'd sell it
;-). No I mean... lets pretend I have something like "cool.com". With
"traditional" apache wildcard subdomains setup and the right entries
on bind, I can have "anything.cool.com" "a.cool.com" "b.cool.com", etc
all pointing to the same web page.

But what if I want to do a hostname in the form
"http://This.bind.is.really.cool.com"? That's 4 levels of
subdomains.

Can someone explain me how to setup something like this, both form the
apache and bind sides??

Regards
Willy
PS: I'm posting this same question to the bind newsgroup since this
involves setting up correctly both daemons.
