ssh errors

sshd[20015]: Accepted publickey for USER from IP  port 3891 ssh2
sshd[20032]: wtmp_get_entry: problem opening /var/adm/wtmp: Permission denied
sshd[20015]: error: openpty: Device busy
sshd[20032]: error: session_pty_req: session 0 alloc failed
if you get this, then something is holding some device files open.  Close all ssh sessions and do a ps -ef | grep ssh.  kill any sessions you find, then restart ssh:  /sbin/init.d/secsh stop / start

newer versions probably do not have this problem - this was on 11.11 using T1471AA                               A.03.81.002    HP-UX Secure Shell


ECC agent install issues on HPUX

if you have file systems listed in fstab that won't mount, dont think you can get away by doing an -x mount_all_filesystems=false.  You'll probably need to comment them out of fstab.  ECC is sometimes bundled and kicks off a secondary swinstall that doesn't get any options passed to it.
also if you get the following message in swagent.log:

An unsupported version of Master Agent was found.  Please uninstall from /usr/ecc to continue.
./install_native.sh[372]: /usr/ecc/install_native.log: Cannot create the specified file.
but yet, there is no /usr/ecc.....    it's finding a file in /var/emc/.eccrc and thinks there's a previous version installed - just delete that file and try again.

OnlineJFS not installed on HPUX 11.31 (or newer versions)

fsadm command to extend a file system online wasn't working – got this error:

UX:vxfs fsadm: ERROR: V-3-25255: fsadm: You don't have a license to run this program

I then checked and did not see the OnlineJFS product, so I did the following steps to fix it and was able to then extend the file system:

swinstall -x autoreboot=true -x mount_all_filesystems=false -s DEPOTSERVER:/depot/11.31 B3929EA

Then see if the license is installed:
enable license:
/sbin/vxenablef –a

then you should b able to extend.
