Abstract

SC1-UTL-UNPRED SFTP CLIENTS WITH USER PROFILES GREATER THAN 8
CHARACTERS ARE NO LONGER ABLE TO ACCESS THE IBM I VIA SSHD.

Error Description

SFTP clients with user profiles greater than 8 characters are  
no longer able to access the IBM i via SSHD. The access problem
does not occur for the same user when accessing the system      
through SSH. The SFTP access problem was introduced when Open  
SSH version 5.8p1 was installed on the IBM i. The code will be  
updated to allow SFTP users with profiles greater than 8        
characters to access the system.
