I planned to use Squid on my W2k3 network, because I'm tired of ISA2k6.it's a factory in itself. So, I just installed a VM with OpenSuse 11.2 and joined it to my AD W2k3 domain. After correcting the clock problems, everything is running fine except a strange feature that I was not able to solve.After a reboot, I'm not able to login with a domain account. I enter the username/password, choose the domain then it the input fields become grey for 1-2 seconds then the password field is reset and nothing happens.The most strange part comes when you logon with the local root account. You login as root, then logoff and login with any domain account : works like a charm..
I'm trying to integrate my Ubuntu PC into an Active Directory domain using Samba, Kerberos and Winbind. The task I'm trying to accomplish now is to automatically connect user folder from DFS server when domain user logs in. I created a simple (contains one line ) script to do that:
Code: #!/bin/bash mount //<server.domain>/Users$/$1 /media/dfs_user -o rw,user=<domain>\$1
I need to run this script with root privileges and parameter $(whoami) after domain user logs in so it results in command:
Code: mount //<server.domain>/Users$/<username> /media/dfs_user -o rw,user=<domain><username>
What should I do? Is there any other better way (seems little unsecure like this)? I was thinking about adding this into /etc/fstab file, but don't know how to tell it what is the actual name of logged in user... I'm using Ubuntu 10.04 x32.
I have installed OpenSUSE a few months ago and worked fine. But from yesterday i can't login with root user. I received the message: Login: root Invalid user name I have no question for password neither.
How can I enable "Auto Login" for root user?In " Yast --> Security And Users --> User And Group Management --> Expert options --> Login Settings " is just my own user and there's no root user to choose.
I was logged in, but had not used the computer for about 48 hours. When I 'woke' the system, I could see that Thunderbird and Firefox were active, just as I had left them. I moved the mouse, the screen went black and the mouse pointer was visible (and could move). The system stayed like this for about 2 minutes, then wend down completely. I cut power, booted and got the login screen. Each time I put in my password, it looks as if it is loading but then just goes right back to the login screen. I have no problem logging in as root.
I need to run a script (which requires root privileges) on login per-user only. I want this to runtomatically so I'll add an appropriate line to .profile.A couple of questions:1 The easiest way I can think of to run the script as root is to setuid, but I know there are security concerns. Is there a better way
I am not sure if anyone here has any experience with Kaspersky Anti-Virus for Linux but my problem relates to that product.
I am running 11.2 openSUSE and after installing the latest version of the Kaspersky product in question, I went ahead and restarted the machine. At the logon screen, when clicking my user name to log in, the password box would not display.
I tried clicking on the other option and trying it that way and after putting my name in the username box, the machine just started thinking and thinking and nothing happens.
I also tried logging in through terminal service but it would not recognize my password to be correct.
I really need to log into my username since I have important files on that Linux partition. I tried mounting this partition in Windows since I have a dual boot setup but I can only view the folders of the partition and not the contents.
Today I have installed Linux SUSE 11.2 . At installation, I was asked for user-name and password. I edit this correctly.
At the end of the installation, the system reboots until the mask 'user name' and 'password' will be displayed. When I edit my user-name and the password the system said, that the login is not correct.
First, I think, I have forgetten my password an do a new installation of Linus SUSE 11.2 . Whatever, the same problem ist still there.
Using the defaukt x86_64 kernel openSuSE 11.2 (uograded from 11.1) works fine.
I have compiled my own kernel using the 11.1 config with minor changes. Botting runs fine and looking at the boot.msg compared between the default and my own kernel I only see preloadtrace.ko module missing on my own kernel which I would not expect causing mthe problem.
After the boot I am unable to login on the X login screen, text console or ssh.
The X login hangs after I entered username/password. Th elogin box disaapears and the backgroundscreen remains.
On the text console (after stopping xwindows via CTRL-Backspace) I can enter the username but the password prompt will not appear.
On ssh, where I login via plublic key I will get a message that the key will be used for login and then the session hangs as well.
Using openSUSE 11.4 (64-bit). Desktop is default KDE. All of a sudden I am no longer able to login. My desktop only has one user and when I key in the password (which I am 100% sure it is correct!) I get the dreaded "Login failed" message. I followed these instructions without success: How to reset/recover the ROOT password in openSUSE | SUSE & openSUSE Following the instructions in the above link, I tried re-typing the old password and created new ones too. But I keep on getting the Login Failed message. A strange situation
I can't log into my normal user account anymore, though I can log in with root without any problem. When I enter my normal user name and password, the screen blinks, a black page appears and after a couple of seconds I get the login screen again. I deleted /tmp files but no changes. I tried to login using command mode. So I hit Ctrl-Alt-F1 and log into root in command mode, then ran init3, then switched user to my normal user and ran startx. It worked and I logged into my normal account, but I can not do this process every time. So, what is the problem? How can I solve this problem? I used to work with my normal user flawlessly. I installed a bunch of software and also copied some folders to my home directory, but I don't know whether these activities caused the problem or not. I'm using KDE4 under openSUSE 11.2.
Had to reinstall 11.4 KDE 64 bit last weekend.This morning I upgraded from the default KDE (that comes with the 11.4 DVD) to KDE 4.6.3.On rebooting I am unable to login, after I enter my password the screen flickers, then I am presented again with the logon screen.
I just recently updated to openSUSE 11.2, but after restarting my computer, I was unable to do anything with the keyboard(type my password, CAPS LOCK, Ctrl+Alt+Backspace) or move the pointer with my wireless mouse. After restarting the computer again, I turned on the touchpad of my laptop and was able to move the pointer using the built-in touchpad. After yet a 3rd restart, I could not move my pointer using any method.
After a 4th restart, I chose to enter the failsafe mode, where I could attempt to find the problem from the command line. I manually started KDM as root by typing in "kdm", but nothing happened, which means that the screen did not switch into graphical mode, but the terminal only accepted the command. Then, I manually started X as root by typing in "X", and X started. I only saw a black screen, but I could not kill X by the traditional "Ctrl+Alt+Backspace" and was forced to shutdown my computer via the power button.
I do want to note that on every boot of my machine, "WARNING" messages have begun appearing, but they went so fast that I could not read them. If there is any way to read them, I would greatly appreciate knowing. Also when updating my machine, I remember ignoring some dependencies for kernel-extra, kdm-branding, sox, and gcc44-fortran; but I did not believe that ignoring these dependencies could cause a broken system so I proceeded with the upgrade.
I am running OpenSuse 11.4 with Gnome3, with 2 hard drives. One is for the system and has three partitions - root, swap, and home. The second is only data storage. Last week I started getting popups stating I had a hard drive going bad. I checked SMART status in disk utility and had several bad sectors on the system drive, so I cloned the drive to a new one with Clonezilla. Here is where everything went kooky. When I booted the new disk I had a ton of errors at boot along the lines of unable to find a drive. Upon closer inspection I realized the the system located the drives by device id instead of the traditional /dev/sdx. So I started playing with grub settings but never could get it to stop looking for the old hdd. Next, I popped in my net install disc and found I could do an upgrade install which proceeded normally. When I rebooted, no more boot errors, but I get to the black screen with spinning cursor and it will not proceed any further, I even let it run overnight and when I woke up, spinning cursor. As for troubleshooting, I was able to CTRL+ALT+F2 to a console and log in as root successfully but not as a user. When I try to log in as a user, I enter my username, then password, the "have a lot of fun" flashes by quickly and I am returned to a login prompt. I logged in to the console as root and created a new user and tried logging in again, but same thing. I am able to do an ls -l on /home/mike and all my files are there and the listed permissions look ok. I am at a loss as to what to try next. My old hdd will still boot, I just pulled it to reduce risk af data loss. I have never used auto yast before but I always see the prompt for it during an install. Can I clone the system with auto yast on to a different hard drive. Does it strip the by-device-id from the image? Which logs should I check?
I have the following problem: I can't authorize with my central WinNT 4.0 domain controller. I set up all parameters in YaST, but still can't see any shares or get inet access.I am using gnome and it shows several windows workgroups. While I am trying to open it, gnome shows a window to request my login credentials. I am setting up all thing right and then it shows it again. I tried smbclient utility to login, but still can't login.What can I do about it?Also I have some problems with my http proxy: suse doesn't sent it my login/password while I can easily work with proxy, that doesn't request it
Our Sled 10.1 server is running as a VM on VSpher 4. After a power outage we can not log into the server we get the Error in Module message. I can however disable the nic card for the server in the vm console and the system logs in with no problem.

After my last upgrade from 10.? to 10? my users' (kids) were unable to login. I tried to fix it and could not find anything wrong. Now I have upgraded to 11.? and the problem persists. The users could still login by selecting an older version at the prompt during boot up.
I deleted there account and reinstall the user and still they could not login. I added a completely new test user and could not log that one in either. The system excepts the password, waits a several seconds, then the mouse curser changes to the spinning circle. The hard drive lights flash for many seconds then eventually the hard drive stops flashing. I have let it sit a long time and it never continues. Tonight I came home tried to login and it is doing the same thing to me tonight. I ran fix packages, fix grub and everything else I could think of and could not log in.
Finally I logged in to the oldest version on there and it let me in.? The screens are all the same but the desk top is entirely different? I have never seen one like this. I think its like the new version of fire fox, with every thing moved around. Icons down the side. Menu's hidden at the top? I can probably get used to that but I need to able to login, and my user's to login?
After upgrading FEdora 13, user ravi was added. Then after few days neel was added. Both of the users were already existing. So when attempting login to neel, we found that every file is owned by ravi. So we did$chown -R neel:neel But after that problem started and when we rebooted the machin, there were no list of users on login screen. (then I connected to that comp remotely, it worked, but somehow I was not able to switch to root) It says incorrect password (though I new it very well). So I went to maintenance mode and changed the root password, and rebooted. Still problem persists.Now I am not able to login as root (from anywhere, login screen , terminal, remote)No list of usernames on login screen ( but i can choose, other and type login-password)
I have just upgraded my laptop from F8 to F10, and I am unable to login to the system as root user.At login, it provides 2 options, one is the user I created and another called 'other'.On selecting 'other' and providing uid/passwd as 'root/<rootpassword>, it says "Unable to Authenticate User"!!However, when I tried to access my windows partition, it happily accepted the root password
