Authentication database contains an inconsistency
This message is displayed while running one of the programs
associated with the TCB or a protected subsystem.
The Authentication database integrity is in question.
The Authentication database
is a composite of the Protected Password database,
the Terminal Control database,
the File Control database,
the Protected Subsystem database, and the
System Defaults database, and the
message applies to all of these. Either a data entry is not present when
expected, or the items within an entry are not correct. This message is
intentionally vague. The invoking user is alerted to the
problem but not given enough information about the cause to allow them to
exploit an integrity problem within the security perimeter. The real reason
for the problem may be found in the audit trail if the
Database Events event
was enabled for the user that generated the message.
should help you determine the problem.
Can't rewrite terminal control entry for tty Authentication error; see Account Administrator
