Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 17563
Unable to Authenticate/Login
Last modified: 2007-04-18 12:28:34 EDT
No users are able to login using telnet either remotely or locally. Users
receive an Invalid Password message after entering their login and
password. I am also unable to login as root at the local machine. I have
used the -s startup option, changed several passwords, and it still says
Invalid Password when attempting to login. As a side note, the ftp/http
services are both running and authenticating correctly.
The etc/pam.d/login security settings appear to be normal.
shadow? md5 passwds?
as "root" you cannot login, unless you add ttyp* to /etc/securetty
i mean login via telnet
