iSeries SSH Login Error

When I try to SSH into our iSeries (V7R1) - I get the following error:

-bash: cannot set terminal process group (-1): No such device or address
-bash: no job control in this shell
-bash-4.2$ logout

I am using Putty to try to connect.

Anyone have any ideas what might be going on? I attempted to recycle the SSHD server (ENDTCPSVR *SSHD) but that didn't resolve the issue.

Seems familiar, but I can't recall specific cause.  A couple of things to check:

Does the IBM i user profile you are using have a HOME directory configured (WRKUSRPRF), does that directory exist, and does the profile have rights to it?

PASE kicks off additional "threads" of execution by starting multiple jobs.  Any chance your job is getting initiated through a job queue with a single job limit?

I found that there were a large number of processes connected to SSH with a new program a developer is working on (this is our development server). After ending all these jobs - we were able to get in to SSH again...
Gary PattersonVP Technology / Senior Consultant Commented:
Yeah - that's the "too many jobs for the queue" problem, most likely.  You want these PASE/QShell jobs set up to run in a *NOMAX queue if possible.
