mkuser not working

mkuser not working

mkuser not working

Hello Guys,
I am having a problem with mkuser in one of my servers, I get the following error:
friday3004-691 Error changing "auditclasses".
3004-703 Check "/etc/security/mkuser.default" file.
3004-721 Could not create user.
3004-703 Check "/etc/security/mkuser.sys" file.
: The file access permissions do not allow the specified action.

I don't know why the error starts with "friday", I found that pretty weird.
I have compare the permission and ownership of the following files:
to other server where I can create new users and every one matches.
I can't use smit either.
any thoughts? I am running out of ideas.

RE: mkuser not working

Good Morning,

looks like the /etc/security/mkuser.sys does a lot of mkdir, chmod, chown, chgrp itself ...

Maybe you should start by checking all the directories and files mentioned there for correct rw permissions.

Best Regards,
