vsftp 530 error

I have spent hours trying to configure vsftpd-1.2.1 on RedHat 7.3 (2,4,18-18 kernel) .

I have tried multiple configurations and still, I keep getting the error "530 this FTP server is anonymous only". Her is my vsftpd.conf settings:
ftpd_banner=Welcome to blah FTP service.

-_------------------ my xinetd.d/vsftpd file:

socket_type = stream
wait = no
user = root
server = /usr/local/sbin/vsftpd
# log_on_success += DURATION USERID
# log_on_failure += USERID
nice = 10
disable = no
server_args = /etc/vsftpd.conf

I am setting up a server for clients to upload customer data. Eventually clients will have thier own local user account and be confined to thier own directory. But I need to get past config problem first.
I would really be thankful if anyone can tell me why this thing STILL thinks its an anonymous only server. Thanks in advance.

I had this same error.

The problem is caused by the daemon not being able to find vsftpd.conf
by default the conf is in /etc/vsftpd but when starting it from /etc/xinetd.d it looks for the config in etc.

Try this.
ln -s /etc/vsftpd/vsftpd.conf /etc/vsftpd.conf
or copy the conf to etc.

Hope this resolves it for you ;-)
