An error occurred updating the password database aix
The files maintain a list of previous user passwords. This password lists key's associated content and the lastupdate value is a 4-byte, unsigned long.
The /etc/security/and /etc/security/files are database files created and maintained by Database Manager (DBM) subroutines. The password list contains multiple pairs of a lastupdatevalue and an encrypted, null-terminated password.
Is this really the only AIX server on your network?

[compat]: 3004-610 You are required to change your password. I change it and the next time I log on it ask the same question.
I think the pawwd file is corrupted if it is how can I fix it.
