Check to see under /etc/passwd for the user you are trying to login with if their shell is pointing to /bin/login. If so, change it to the basic shell (/bin/sh) and see if that corrects the problem.

Hi,
check whether bos.rte.security is installed.
This package contains /usr/sbin/tsm.

There is also an apar concerning problems in bos.rte.security related to /usr/sbin/tsm:
IZ19034
bos.rte.security 5.3.8.1
Please check it here:

Since /usr/sbin/tsm is part of bos.rte.security and tsm is not found, you'll have to reinstall the package  or recover tsm from backup.
Use 'overwrite same or newer versions: yes' when reinstalling via smit.
I hope reinstall will work, because bos.rte.security is tightly coupled with bos.rte.
Try 'preview only: yes' first!

Hi rammaghenthar,
if you can' t recover /usr/sbin/tsm, perhaps from another machine with bos.rte.security installed or from a backup, you should reinstall bos.rte.security.5.3.8 (if you really have TL 8 running) with the above precautions. It's a bit strange that your lslpp says you had bos.rte.security.5.3.0.53,
because TL8 contains bos.rte.security.5.3.8.
What does 'oslevel -s' say?
What 'instfix -i | grep ML' ? If you can't find 5300-08_AIX_ML here,  enter
'oslevel -rl 5300-08'
It's possible that you will have to re-run your update for TL8, but let's first look at the output of the above commands. Please post it, including the output of 'oslevel -qr'.

Also, the location for telnetd is /usr/sbin/telnetd. If telnetd is moved to another location, modify the inetd.conf accordingly. Check /etc/inetd.conf.

The minimal inetd.conf contents to make telnetd work:
telnet  stream  tcp6    nowait  root    /usr/sbin/telnetd      telnetd -a
