A possible cause of Your dropping to unix is thtat the LOGIN paragraph has a Q or QUIT command after the one starting MOTIF.
How can You check for that when You can't get to the command line?
Two alternatives: If You can create a new uv account by just invoking uv in an perferably empty unix account and answer the prompts and then create a file pointer from the new account to the uv account's VOC and read/change the LOGIN VOC entry with the editor.
Use UVread VOC LOGIN from unix in uv home acccount to read the entry
and (still from unix in the uv account ):
UVread VOC LOGIN <<EOF PA
to replace the bad LOGIN entry with a harmless one.
You may want to skip the lines between PA and EOF and
then start the menu by typing MOTIF SYSADM.MENU
once in uv to explore the reason behind the manu breakdown..
You may have to use the absolute path to the UVread/write programs -
somthing like /usr/uv/bin/UVread ( or just bin/UVread ).
Problem: Unable to process the menu commands in the home uv account (newly installed uv, no prior uv installed)
Everytime when I press <ENTER> on any of the options in the menu (display of menu ok), it will drop me to the unix prompt. Login as 'root' and use term 'vt220' via telnet session. Also when enter <ESC> in the menu options, it will drop to unix prompt instead of back to universe prompt.
