Dear Justin;
I have checked the permission on 2 of the nodes and the permissions are just as you specified below.

Subject: Re: Linux ssh Logon error prompt


The error indicates, to me at least, that there is some kind of problem with the Bash shell executable. Have you confirmed that /bin/bash actually exists? Are the permissions of the executable set correctly? Here's how they look on an OL6 VM I have running: [root_at_12cR1EE ~]# ls -l /bin/bash-rwxr-xr-x. 1 root root 903272 Dec 19 2012 /bin/bash -Justin

Dear Gurus;
I have a problem I stumbled upon and I am hoping you can direct me on a fix even though this is a Linux question and sort of trivial. The Environment is Oracle Enterprise Linux 6 (x86-64). I am configuring some Linux servers for an oracle installation. I noticed that after setting up the environments and user equivalence using included in the GI package, using ssh to log on to another server succeeds but throws the following error after login: -bash: [/bin/bash: no such file or directory This problem does not happen when I log on to any users shell normally, it only does using ssh to another server. I have checked the $PATH variables and /etc/profile, the .bash_profile for all the users and all the servers.I also tried loading the path variables in .bashrc. I have created another user afresh and tested and it still gives the same error. At a point I thought it was the "PermitUserEnvironment" directive in sshd_config which was causing the problem and set it to "yes" but the problem still persists. I am at a loss to where this problem is coming from.Could it be an edit I made or something wrong elsewhere? Your keen eyes are needed.
Thanks in advance.
