Multiple pconsole processes spawning indefinetly

Good night everyone, I've been trying to make AD authentication work with RBAC and I think I messed my test LPAR up.

I've manually modified the /etc/security/user.roles file, adding a role to one of my AD users (who is not defined locally) and then runned setkst. It worked fine, but now I found that there is an issue with pconsole (IBM Systems Director Console). It keeps spawning processes until it fills up the memory, the only solution I've found so far is to disable the pconsole services. A ps -ef looks like this, any ideas on what to do or where to look? I've already tried manually editing the /etc/security/user.roles file and running setkst again, but it doesn't fix the problem .

Curiosity killed the cat - so I am asking what did you change, what did you set back.

If you want to use RBAC and pconsole you might be able to setup some RBAC for a user.

In any case, you need to let pconsole (if you were planning on using that) create the role for a user (normally pcon_username) for roles needed while using pconsole (or pcons_username - I forget).

The SYSTEM parameter in /etc/security/user should make sure that LDAP is used for login, so username/password is stored in LDAP - while having an additional definition of the USER (will need to run mkuser -R files id=NNN pgid=GGG) to create the user in the local registery.

lsuser username will tell you how AIX sees the user after login.
lsuser -R files username (AIX view local files only)
lsuser -R LDAP username (AIX view using LDAP information only - I think. If it is giving information that is not in AD then it is still going to the files are to fill in blanks (in particular the default: stanzas in /etc/security/*).
