Meaning of and causes of INVLOGIN error?

» close window

The Question is:

why do i get an system-f-invlogin when i copy from one machine to another with
 a correct access control string?

The Answer is :

  Most commonly, because you don't have a correct access control string.
  This could be any of the usual causes of an invalid login, ranging from
  and incorrect username or password, to an otherwise valid username and
  password that is not permitted to access the system from your source.
  Please use security auditing and security alarms on the remote system,
  as this mechanism can identifiy the specific cause of the failure.
  System accounting can also potentially indicate the cause of the
  failure.  (For reasons of security, a generic failuire is deliberately
  returned to an unauthenticated user.  Specific details are provided
  in the alarms, audits, and accounting data.)
 INVLOGIN,  login information invalid at remote node
  Facility:     SYSTEM, System Services
  Explanation:  An unsuccessful attempt was made to initiate a network logical
                link connection.
  User Action:  The access control string specified is incorrect. If default
                access control is used, notify the system manager that the
                network configuration database needs to be updated.
                This error can be returned if the specified access control
                string is not recognized (for example, no record in the UAF),
                or is too long, or contains invalid characters.
