SCO console login auto fills *

OS: SCO Openr Server 6.0 MP4
HW: Dell R710 Server

When I try to login to the console, the login prompt keeps filling with *

even when I presss enter after the password prompt the login starts filling automatically with the multiple asterisks. This is happening on the console only and if I keep trying the system freezes to a halt, if I dont try to login from console, the users can login from their telnet sessions.

Please guide what to look for

Thanks

it seems that there are some processes spawning too many times.

The login on the console keeps on cycling through all the screens available on the console. (text screens)

Any log files i can check to see what is going on.?

very strange

We had the evaluation license intiall, today I put in the actual license and the problem seems to be resolved

---------- Post updated 11-17-10 at 12:07 PM ---------- Previous update was 11-16-10 at 04:15 PM ----------

One more step i need to add is that to remove the evaluation license and then add the base system license

sulogin(1M)						  System Administration Commands					       sulogin(1M)

NAME
sulogin - access single-user mode SYNOPSIS
sulogin DESCRIPTION
The sulogin utility is automatically invoked by init when the system is first started. It prompts the user to type the root password to enter system maintenance mode (single-user mode) or to type EOF (typically <CTRL-D>) for normal startup (multi-user mode). The user should never directly invoke sulogin. The sulogin utility can prompt the user to enter the root password on a variable number of serial console devices, in addition to the tra- ditional console device. See consadm(1M) and msglog(7D) for a description of how to configure a serial device to display the single-user login prompt. FILES
/etc/default/sulogin Default value can be set for the following flag: PASSREQ Determines if login requires a password. Default is PASSREQ=YES. /etc/default/login Default value can be set for the following flag: SLEEPTIME If present, sets the number of seconds to wait before login failure is printed to the screen and another login attempt is allowed. Default is 4 seconds. Minimum is 0 seconds. Maximum is 5 seconds. Both su(1M) and login(1) are affected by the value of SLEEPTIME. ATTRIBUTES
