Help with CDE Root Login

Dear Forum,

I had this problem initially with HPUX 11.23, all users including root could not login via CDE or telnet. Then after some workarounds, it resolved by resetting root password via console login. After enabling back all users to login normally (via CDE or telnet), only root can not login from CDE. Now I have no idea what caused this.

I'll appreciate feedback how to restore root login from CDE back.

Thanks all for your attention

Did you look in root's home directory the content of the logs found in .dt etc..
Like errorlog, startlog etc...?

do you by any chance have a file called

/etc/securetty

with the word "console" in it ? (without the quotation marks of course)

If CDE means using xdmcp to get GUI, then it bypasses /etc/securetty (I know - I had to find workaround to prevent it...)
