VOM 4.0: Need help in installation; unable to do root login to VOM manager

After installation, automated configuration of VOM 4.1 and successful https connection to VOM console prompting for login,  the root login fails.

Error Message

Error V-394-53245-73
Failed to Log in. User is not Authorize

Cause

VOM  is particular about gid for root login.

Solution

[tenzing] # cat /etc/group
root::1:
 

Change the group gid to "0" on the VOM unix host.

VOM assumes root root belongs to group gid "0".

All Unix hosts
