/usr/bin/xauth: creating new authority file /home/username/.Xauthority
 
I just loaded a server, and the first time each user SSH'd into the server, they got the message from the subject line of this post.

Is that a normal message to see? Or did I install something that I possibly didnt want and that's why its giving me that message?

I want the server to be CLI only, wonder what the X is for, maybe I installed somethign I didnt want to, not sure.

Also, I notice when I SSH in, after i type my password and hit enter, there is a 5 second pause before i get to the login prompt, where none of my other servers do that. I definitely think i did something wrong during the install :-(

Another thing I noticed comparing the anaconda file from two servers, is that the one that logs me in instantly has the following line, while the one I just loaded with the delay does not have this line

xconfig --startxonboot

anyone have any thoughts as to what might be causing that delay upon submitting the password? if not, i might just reload the server, see if that fixes it.

I looked at my /etc/nsswitch.conf
and compared it to a servers that doesn't have the problem and they are the same.

Sounds like you have X Window running on the server.

rjo98 06-11-2010 09:26 AM

How can I check? I dont want that running because I want it CLI only right?

Can I uninstall it perhaps?

I just reloaded the server, adn the delay has disappeared.

I am having the same issue. How did you reload the server?

rjo98 12-21-2010 07:27 PM

Well since this was a brand new server, I just reloaded it from scratch. If I recall correctly based on rereading the posts, since I wanted command line interface only, I probably didn't install the x window stuff the 2nd time around, but can't remember 100 percent
