 += Fix: sshd: error: subsystem: cannot stat /​usr/​libexec/​sftp-server =
  
 +To be exact, I get this message several times a week in my syslog server:
 +
 +<​code>​
 +5  auth  auth  error ​ message forwarded from aixbox: sshd[283116]:​ error: subsystem: cannot stat /​usr/​libexec/​sftp-server:​ no such file or directory
 +</​code>​
 +
 +The message is coming from AIX 6.1 TL4 with openSSH 5.2.0.5300 installed. On another box with AIX 5.3 TL 6 and openSSH 5.0.0.5300 installed the error does not occur. ​
 +
 += Fix =
 +The problem is in the /​etc/​ssh/​sshd_config file:
 +<​code>​
 +...<​cut>​...
 +# override default of no subsystems
 +Subsystem ​     sftp    /​usr/​libexec/​sftp-server
 +...<​cut>​...
 +</​code>​
 +The mentioned sftp-server is not available, it should point to the sftp-server in /sbin:
 +
 +<​code>​
 +# override default of no subsystems
 +#​Subsystem ​     sftp    /​usr/​libexec/​sftp-server
 +Subsystem ​     sftp    /​usr/​sbin/​sftp-server
 +</​code>​
 +
 +After this change, restart the ssh service:
 +<​code>​
 +SHooft@aixbox:/​home/​SHooft>​sudo /​etc/​rc.d/​rc2.d/​Ssshd stop
 +0513-044 The sshd Subsystem was requested to stop.
 +SHooft@aixbox:/​home/​SHooft>​sudo /​etc/​rc.d/​rc2.d/​Ssshd start
 +0513-059 The sshd Subsystem has been started. Subsystem PID is 143726.
 +</​code>​
 +
 +Now the message is gone.
