Starting sshd … PRNG is not seeded

    Yesterday i applied TL7SP5 to a Aix 6.1 lpar and after reboot it just was inactive on the network…

    Log on the lpar through hmc and …surprise , all daemons were stopped..
    I thought , just start them … but first of all i’ll start sshd … eheh

    root@pprctest:/#startsrc -s sshd
    0513-059 The sshd Subsystem has been started. Subsystem PID is 4128828.
    root@pprctest:/#PRNG is not seeded
    PRNG is not seeded
    PRNG is not seeded

    mmm i’ll need to investigate , going on searching i try to check permissions on the /dev/random and /dev/urandom files …
    but  /dev/*random* devices were missing…….and I had to really need them!

    # odmget CuDvDr | grep -p random
    CuDvDr:
    resource = “ddins”
    value1 = “random”
    value2 = “32”
    value3 = “”

    root@pprctest:/# mknod /dev/random c 32 0
    root@pprctest:/# mknod /dev/urandom c 32 1
    root@pprctest:/# randomctl -l

    root@pprctest:/# stopsrc -s sshd

    root@pprctest:/# startsrc -s sshd
