Has this issue been resolved? I have been having
this very same problem in a slightly different
I have a network of 40 HPUX workstations. I had to
set up a server and
decided to use linux (which I truly believe can
hold itself in a network
this size). A little summary of the network
follows this paragraph and
then my problem.
1 Linux Server (Pentium III Dell with a 27 GB HD)
40 HPUX Workstations
20 desktop Dell PCs
All the machines are networked via Cisco switches
and all are running at
The HPUX workstations have fields in their PASSWD
and GROUP files to read
from NFS the information. The home directories
were shared via NFS.
Now for the problems:
The machines can see the server via NIS. They
request their databases and
build their files accordingly. No problems there.
When you enter your
login and pass it goes through OK and when listing
NFS shared files are
listed as owned by their right owners (not by UIDs
or GIDs, which could
mean the databases are not going through). The
passwords work and the file
Then it stops working. When you try to login it
takes a while. It says it
is checking for disk quotas and hangs there for
two or three minutes and
then it gives me the shell prompt.
If I do a telnet to the machine it enters
immediately with login and pass.
But if I do a telnet from the workstation itself
to itself (telnet 0) or
try to enter from the console THEN I get the disk
Now, HPUX does not come with the TCSH shell, so I
downloaded a binary copy
of it (I was planning on downloading a full set of
utilities and programs
and sharing that directory as well with the
workstations, stuff like mc,
pico, pine, etc.).
I don't know what version tcsh is but I have moved
away the configuration
files and the problem persists (by configuration
files I mean all the dot
I have also noted that if I log in with my
loginname and my password, and
even tho' I see my root files (via NFS) as mine as
well, I can't write to
them. Only is they are in 777 mode can I execute
and read the directories.
And only in 666 can I red and modify the files.
I have noticed that a "df -k" command will report
0K used and 0K allocated. Yet the percentage of
use is correct (14%).
I am stuck here. I would appreciate *ANY* mail.
