When logging in to a partition as the 'root' user, login is denied and displays the message 'password expired'. The 'root' user is not allowed to log into partitions, so the error message is misleading.
The one logging in might be confused about why root access is denied. A more accurate message is as follows: Remote login to a partition as 'root' is not allowed.
This occurs when attempting to log into a partition as the root user.
