AIX V4.2.1
Perl V5.00404
When I executed following dbmmanage command, password added in password file
was successfully encrypted, but authentification failed.
    ./dbmmanage /user2 adduser kubota
And when I tried to access protected document from client browser, I got an
error message saying "No group file?".

UserID, Password
    UserID      kubota
    Password    1107

httpd.conf definition
    LoadModule dbm_auth_module /libexec/mod_auth_dbm.so

    <Directory /usr/lpp/HTTPServer/share/htdocs/manual>
        AuthType               Basic
        AuthName              "Protected Material"
        AuthDBMUserFile    /user2
        Require                  valid-user
Recreation steps
    1.Execute dbmmanage command
        ./dbmmanage /user2 adduser kubota
    2.Entere password twice at the prompt displayed
    3.Check the 'user2' file
        Password was successfully encrypted
    4.Access protected URL from client browser
        Couldn't retrieve document, and error message was written in error 
        log file as shown below
            configuration error: couldn't check access. No group file?: 

So I tried to edit group file, group2.pag, that contain only one line as shown below. (kubota
is a user name, and test is a group name)


And I wrote httpd.conf as follows.

    <Directory /usr/lpp/HTTPServer/share/htdocs/manual>
        AuthType               Basic
        AuthName              "Protected Material"
        AuthDBMUserFile    /user2
        AuthDBMUserFile    /group2
        Require                  valid-user

But result was also same, and I got same error message saying "No group file?"
