Description Joey Boggs 2011-09-26 16:22:35 UTC
after logging in as admin and using the setup there will be left over defunct passwd processes

Hi Joey,
   Could you prepare the detail test steps to verify this bug, we can not reproduce it with our test steps.

our test steps:
1. login as admin user.
2. F2 to shell.
3. run 'exit' to return to setup.
4. ssh admin@ip address.
5. F2 to shell
6. #top
7. #ps -ef|grep defunc

we can not reproduce this issue, there is no defunct passwd process.


Comment 3 Joey Boggs 2011-09-27 12:19:22 UTC
those steps should be enough to reproduce it, Steve can you tell us if they were reproduced by doing anything else

Comment 4 Steve Grubb 2011-09-27 12:59:41 UTC
Actually, I get in another way.
1) login as admin
2) press F10
3) choose any log
4) Enter  ":!!/bin/sh" when the log is on the screen
5) this should drop you to a command prompt, if not try again and make sure !! is on the line. It seems to discard the first one.
6) ps -ef | grep passwd

Comment 5 Joey Boggs 2011-09-27 13:13:22 UTC
ok just retried it and the patch is still good

Comment 7 Guohua Ouyang 2011-10-09 05:38:21 UTC
Verified on 6.2-20111006 build:
1. Press F8 and choose any log, enter ":!!/bin/sh"  cannot drop to shell.
2. `ps -ef | grep passwd`, no defunct passwd process.
