    Default asroot cause file control database inconsistency

    SCO OS 5.0.6 with rs506

    After setting a customer up with 'asroot' commands, as per 'man asroot',
    when I login as a so designated user and try, for example to kill another
    user's process with:

    /tcb/bin/asroot kill -9 687

    It fails with error:
    asroot: /tcb/files/rootcmds/kill: file Control database inconsistency
    asroot: The system's integrity may be compromised. Run integrity(ADM)

    Is the 'integrity' safe to run, or is it that sco command that s-up
    more than it fixes? I forget, more each day.

    So you've made some links in /tcb/files/rootcmds.. What are the
    permissions on all of the files in this directory?

    The last time I had these errors, it was because one of the files in that
    structure had write permissions.

    You are right, I 'cp' the file instead of 'ln', because of this section in
    'man root':
    ---------------------------

    1. Copy the desired command into the /tcb/files/rootcmds directory. Do not
    create a link if the permissions on the file are less restrictive than
    those listed in the File Control database (/etc/auth/system/files; see
    files(F)).

    ---------------------------------------
    So I went back and did links instead. I'll see if that works.
