Thanks.  I will test this and see if I can get rclient to work.

Check the shell of the xymon user.  If you’re not sure how to do that:  grep xymon /etc/users.  The last field should be the shell.  It’s likely set to nologin or some such.  SU has a command line switch to specify a shell, that would be the easiest and most secure way to work around it.  Scot Kreienkamp  | Senior Systems Engineer | La-Z-Boy Corporate

Subject: rclient on new xymon install via rpms I am trying to set up monitoring for about 2,000 servers, and unfortunately, it is going to take a while to get a port open, so I want to use rclient via ssh.Normally I would su into the xymon user, create  the ssh keys and push them out. On this new server via terabith rpms ( RHEL 6.6 ), I get # su - xymon
This account is currently not available. What is a workaround for this so that I can use rclient ? Thanks !Thismessage is intendedonly for the individual or entity to which it is addressed.  It may contain privileged, confidential information which is exempt from disclosure under applicable laws.  If you are not the intended recipient, you are strictly prohibited from disseminating or distributing this information (other than to the intended recipient) or copying this information.  If you have received this communication in error, please notify us immediately by e-mail or by telephone at the above number.
