I am connecting to the Novell Netware (OES) server via ssh. It shows me default novell console. I want it to start bash automatically when I connect. How can I do this?
Unlike SSH for Linux, SSH for NetWare doesn't come with the kind of /etc/passwd or PAM-Ldap hooks needed to specify a default shell. It also doesn't assume it's running a shell or running login scripts, which makes it further unlike Linux-SSH. It is assumed that when you SSH into a NetWare server you're an admin looking to do remote administration, and therefore you need Console. It is meant as a kind of rconsole replacement.
Because of this, you have to explicitly enter bash when you SSH into a NetWare server, it won't do it for you.
The user you're connecting as either has the console set as their shell (
chsh), or has the console set to run in their shell startup scripts.
Not sure if this helps, but in ConsoleOne, in UNIX Profile tab for a user, you can specify the shell. In particular, you can set it to Bash. It seems it also possible to do this via iManager
