Re: rsh with command hangs, rlogin works

That's very strange as syslogd-config creates the dir and then
tests if it exists.

Normal with no output to the shell.
If no output to messages file then you can try raising the priority (-p).
Also check setting the level in /etc/syslogd.conf.

This line proves that syslogd works. Also that we have the same
problem (in.rshd segfault).

Beats me. It does not happen to me. But I haven't had time to
try it on 2003 yet.

Beats me again... sorry.

The only thing I can think of is serious problems with Windows ACL
settings, like in the parent (or grand parent's) folder having a
bad setting that applies recursively...

Or problems with mount points, so that you don't really have /
where you thing (like when /dev does not exist). Does the mounts
exists for all the users?

Or the user is obsoleted in /etc/password (there is a mkpasswd
command one occationally has to run).
