solaris 8 upgrade issue..
Posted on 2006-06-23
We went with the upgrade from solaris 32-bit to solaris 64-bit today. We have to say that the upgrade process went smoothly. But, after the upgrade, the X-session failed to start. When it was time for a login screen, I was handed with the following message:
The X-server can not be started on display: 0…
We also found the following error message when the system was coming up.
Jun 23 12:27:10 dbservt login: open_module: stat (/usr/lib/security/pam_unix_session.so.1) failed: no such file or directory
After the X-server failed to start, the screen was asking for the server login. After attempting to login either with root or username, the following message appeared and was prompted to login again. After entering the username, the system is not asking for the password. The same process would be repeated if tried to login.
Jun 23 12:27:10 dbservt login: open_module: stat (/usr/lib/security/pam_authtok_get.so.1) failed: no such file or directory
Jun 23 12:27:10 dbservt login: load_module: stat (/usr/lib/security/pam_authtok_get.so.1) failed: no such file or directory
So, I am now wondering what is going to be next proper step for us.
