unable to login to functioning AIX 5.3

My AIX 5.3 machine does not accept logins. The error messgaes are:

Could not load program telnetd:
Dependent module libbsd.a(shr.o) could not be loaded.
Could not load module libbsd.a(shr.o).
System error: No such file or directory

Any ideas on how to recover from this?


RE: unable to login to functioning AIX 5.3

You will need to login to the system console.
If it is an LPAR, use the HMC. If it's a P4 or older system you will have to connect a serial console to tty0.
Begin your troubleshooting from there.
