No login accepted
Last modified: 2007-11-30 17:10:43 EST
Description of problem: cannot login to desktop, with the correct username & password
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable): 1
How reproducible: Very
Steps to Reproduce:
2. Login screen, enter uname & pword
3. After 10 minutes "authentication failed"
Actual results: no login
Expected results: should login
What sort of CPU do you have? Which authentication method did you
select at the setup/is current set (pam, ldap whatelse)?
Jay mailed me this one - and I think it's maybe of belong for further
"I used the default authentication options at set up. Afterwards I
provided support for Kerberos, and LDAP in order to connect to Active
Directory. I am not exactly sure what pam is, so I cannot tell
whether or not that is the problem. The machine will not accept any
authentication attempts at all, even as root. The box is a Pentium 3
(867MHz) with 256 MB of normal SDRAM, and a 10GB 5400rpm ATA HDD."
At first I thought about a NPTL problem, but it isn't one, I think.
But I could imagine, that the problem is LDAP & Active Directory,
maybe there's a misconfiguration - which kind and at which side I
still don't know.
Maybe Nalin has a better idea...
Jason, are you using LDAP authentication? Can you send me your
/etc/pam.d/system-auth and /etc/pam.d/passwd ? I need to know contents
of the files in order to reproduce the problem and/or to find a
solution for you.
No response from reporter, probably a misconfiguration.
