The Question is:
UCX$RSHD - Permission denied - VMS user:ROOT when rsh command attempted from
The Answer is :
When posting questions, please remember to include the command(s) used,
the relevent version information, and relevent configuration information.
Based on the prefixes shown, you are running an older version of TCP/IP
Services and (based on the OpenVMS version) you will want to upgrade to
OpenVMS VAX V7.2 or V7.3 (with ECOs), and you will want to upgrade to
TCP/IP Services V5.0A or V5.1 (with ECO). If you cannot upgrade, please
move to V4.2 with the current ECO applied.
This particular error would imply that the UID/GID proxy mappings for
rsh are not set up to permit the specified (or default) access from
the remote (UNIX) user.
Assuming you are running from and have a proxy from root (lowercase)
or other user on the UNIX system for access to the system (lowercase)
username on OpenVMS, the following UNIX command:
rsh iphost -l system directory
should operate as expected, and should display a DIRECTORY of the
default directory for the SYSTEM username.
For specific information on configuring rsh (rshd) on OpenVMS, and
for information on setting up and maintaining the proxy database,
please read through the TCP/IP Services management documentation.
