UnixWare – Unable to invoke login scheme when logging in

If you’re having problems after you’re certain that you are inputting the correct username and password in an UnixWare like in this case below

emerson@shellcore:~ $ telnet 192.168.45.54
Trying 192.168.45.54…
Connected to 192.168.45.54.
Escape character is ‘^]’.

UnixWare 2.1.3 (SCO) (pts/0)

login: emerson
Password:
UX:in.login: ERROR: Login incorrect
telnetd: Unable to invoke login scheme.
Connection to 192.168.45.54 closed by foreign host.

You need to clear the file /var/adm/lastlog

root@SCO:/ # > /var/adm/lastlog

After that, you’ll no longer see the message that is preventing you from logging in

emerson@shellcore:~ $ telnet 192.168.45.54
Trying 192.168.45.54…
Connected to 192.168.45.54.
Escape character is ‘^]’.

UnixWare 2.1.3 (SCO) (pts/0)

login: emerson
Password:
UX:in.login: ERROR: Your password has expired.
UX:in.login: TO FIX: Choose a new one
Old password:
