Configuring rsh and IP proxies?

» close window

The Question is:

UCX$RSHD - Permission denied - VMS user:ROOT when rsh command attempted from
 unix server

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.
