Let G be a finite group and α be an automorphism of G of order pn for an odd prime p. Suppose that α acts fixed point freely on every α-invariant p′-section of G, and acts trivially or exceptionally on every elementary abelian α-invariant p-section of G. It is proved that G is a solvable p-nilpotent group of nilpotent length at most n + 1, and this bound is best possible.
