Error description

  • If the user's login password was encrypted with Blowfish
    algorithm (pwd_algorithm = sblowfish) and then upgraded
    system to AIX 7.1.3.3 or 6.1.9.3, user can not login
    after the upgrade.
    

Local fix

  • Recovering the root password and then changing
    other user password
    

Problem summary

  • If blowfish algo is used for user passwd algo and system is
    then upgraded to 7100-03-03 OR 6100-09-03, user will not be
    able to login after upgrade
    

Problem conclusion

  • Added a new option in the /etc/security/pwdalg.cfg file under
    blowfish stanza. When this option is set, it uses the standard
    blowfish algorithm,which allows the repeated string in the
    password. Otherwise it uses the default blowfish algorithm.
    

Temporary fix
