Tivoli Desktop for Windows login fails -- error

Technote (troubleshooting)


Problem(Abstract)

Troubleshooting login failures from Windows Tivoli Desktop for Windows to Solaris TMR?
Have same problem with TEC console GUI as well.

Symptom

Get generic "Connection Failed" pop-up with "Error connecting to host."
Trying to log in as root (root login added). Password is correct.
$root_user and $root_group both resolve to root.
Remote client login set to version_2.
Single Port BDT is true with port 9401.
Perform local hostname lookup for IOM connections set to TRUE.


Cause

This is a QAS-enabled server.

Environment

Solaris

Resolving the problem

If a TMR is running on a QAS enabled server you must make the following
updates. The issue manifests itself as users (and even root) not
being able to logon using the Tivoli Desktop.

/etc/pam.conf (add to the bottom of the file)



oserv auth sufficient pam_vas3.so create_homedir
get_nonvas_pass try_first_pass
oserv auth requisite pam_vas3.so echo_return
oserv auth requisite pam_authtok_get.so.1 use_first_pass
oserv auth required pam_unix_cred.so.1 use_first_pass
oserv auth required pam_unix_auth.so.1 use_first_pass


/etc/Tivoli/oserv.rc

(add the following lines just before the 'case "$1" in' line)
## Added per PMR 41149,499
LD_PRELOAD_32=/usr/lib/extendedFILE.so.1
export LD_PRELOAD_32
ulimit -Sn 1024

Restart oserv.
