AIX 5.3 ML10 new install, rsh only partially working

Two boxes we just reloaded to use as a two node HACMP cluster to insure our software is compatible.

Install disks we received at our library on 5/2009 AIX 5.3-ML10

For sake of argument names ibmaix1 and ibmaix2

On both:
ibmaix1# oslevel -r

.rhosts files with 600 permissions
ibmaix1 root
ibmaix2 root

hosts.equiv file created
ibmaix1 root
ibmaix2 root

also ran: chuser rcmds=allow root

rlogin works with no password, get command prompt immediately

rsh system_name
will give you command prompt if you DO NOT specify a command

If I specify rsh with a command I get:

ibmaix2# rsh ibmaix1 ps A remote host refused an attempted connect operation.

I have set this up before and not had problems.

I am looking at the pam.conf but have not modified it yet.

Any suggestions will be appreciated.

Answering my own question.

The final problem was that the "shell" entry was commented out in /etc/inted.conf

went smit inetd and restarted the service after removing the comment. Things started working after that.
