I have a user that telnets to my NetView Server (v5.1) for AIX and logs in
w/ his own unique userid and password. He was trying to change his password
via the passwd command and it prompts him for servdir's old password. What
is servdir and any idea why this is happening?

I signed into the system as myself (trsd), then su to root, then su to his
userid (nbsw):

[email protected]:/OV/home/nbsw >whoami
[email protected]:/OV/home/nbsw >who am i
trsd        pts/8       Jun 07 06:30    (
[email protected]:/OV/home/nbsw >passwd
Changing password for "servdir"
servdir's Old password: 

Have to su to root and then nbsw because I don't know his password.
