This message means that a terminal device file entry
is missing from the Terminal Control database.
To ensure that all terminal devices that appear in /dev
are recorded in the Terminal Control database
(/etc/auth/system/ttys), log in as root
and enter these commands:
/tcb/bin/ale /etc/auth/system/ttys pttyupd
The first command ensures that all tty device entries in /etc/inittab have an entry in the Terminal Control database. The second command performs a similar function with respect to pseudo-ttys (for example, /dev/ttyp1).
