CentOS 5 :: Unable To Login To The Console With The New User Created
Feb 25, 2011
I had successfully installed centOS,i am able to login as root.I created local users.But unable to login via console and FTP.As per the logs there were some LDAP issue,so i disabled LDAP and disabled PAM config as well.Now i am able to login to the FTP with the local users created.unable to login to the centOS console with the local user.
I scan a document with root pressing the scanner button. I would like to send an email using my gmail account. OK. nothing difficult with that... mbsmtp + mutt for sending trhough the sh script.
1-root is to be avoided at max to do some internet duties, due to security. Apt-get is good, but ok surfing or email sending shall be avoided for higher security.
2- sudo or su running mutt through this way, ok, using an existing user. OK, possible and simple, but not comfortable since you have to use an account of an user existing (create a new user for scanner and email?? - no, come on, we have linux and can maybe find a solution)
how to send an Email from root console using an non created USER?
I am not able to login to server from console attached to server, every time i enter username & password but it again asks for username & password. But when i try to login to server from remote machine, login happens properly.
This may be a rookie mistake, but I created a user (new user) in Linux on a Ubuntu system and didn't actually create the home directory for this user. Now, when I log in, it says there are problems... If I delete the path home/<new user> and try to log in the system tells me I can use root as home directory but I will likely experience problems, and then it won't let me log in. What is the best way to create this directory with the appropriate permissions? Should I just create another user and delete this one?
On a Debian Linux box, SVN Server is installed. In the partition where SVN was installed, Free disk space is causing anxiety, hence started creating new instances in a new partition, though I am able to get the first screen (it prompts for username and password), I am unable to login even though the username and passwords are correct.
- is there a way to set the default user in console login so that all needed is to press enter(or event without it) to be able to input the password for that user - also is it possible to console login without password, by just inputting user name and pressing enter how to put startx for that user right on login, so that the user doesn't input the command manually
I am using rhel 5.3. I am using windows 2003 server 32-bit (the processor is 64 bit. AMD athlon x2). I have installed vmware and installed rhel5.3 64 bit on top of it. Now i am able to login as root from GUI mode (f7 console), but unable to login in text console from f1 to f6. I checked the /etc/securetty. But there was nothing unusual there. I think udev is causing this problem, since google said so. I cant find where the udev.rules file is located that google searches are taking about. How do i enable root login in f1-6 console.
Original HOWTO can be found at: [URL]... So the other day I was in IRC and someone had brought up a problem where they created a new Administrative user, but didnt have rights to use sudo. Looked into the problem a little bit to figure out what was wrong, and it turns out that when you create a new user through the user manager (in kubuntu, anyways. Havent tested in Gnome.) the user gets added to the adm group, however, a quick look at the sudoers file shows that its looking for users in the admin group to allow the use of sudo. So, to solve the problem we do the following: If youre on the new admin user (which Im assuming you are) use the following commands:
Code: su [insert username of old account without brackets] sudo usermod -G admin [username of new admin account without brackets] exit
Then simply logout, and then log back in (not always necessary, but the easiest way to flush the permissions.)
Code: su [insert username of old account without brackets] Means were going to Switch User to the old admin account Code: sudo usermod -G admin [username of new admin account without brackets] This simply adds the admin group to the secondary group list for the new user Code: exit Pretty self explanatory
created a user but i forgot to change the home directory permission.so after user created when i go to the user and group mangement i cant see that permission filed related to the home permission directory.my purpose is to stop accessing other user to my home directory,how it can be possible??
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
I created an account using the following command:#useradd -g developers john and successfully changed the user password with:#passwd johnThe user is unable to login using the New Password using SSH. As a root I can login (#su - john) with no problem.
My case is that, the LADP user connected could not login via SSH. This user could login in the system console. And all the other users could login within ssh. And I was wondering whether any one could suggest which place to check next. And here is the detail: I was using SUSE 11.3 when I met this error. PAM module is used, and the corresponding files in /etc/pam.d/ have all been updated. Here is what I've added:
I am unable to login as normal user. I am sure that my password is correct. What are the possible reasons behind this and also the solutions. My /etc/password and /etc/shadow files are good and my login haven't set to /etc/nologin.
Actually this a question asked to me by a Novell(Suse Enterprise Linux) Regional manager.
I am having Opensuse 11.0. Recently I upgraded my system including kernel. Now I am unable to login in X as user. However I can login as root and working perfectly. I can login as user in failsafe as well as after pressing ctrl-alt-f1 when login screen appears.I have tried following---1. Emptied /temp folder and 2. deleting and adding user.
If I'm getting good at anything with Fedora, it would be making mistakes. I have Fedora 12 installed and it was running fine until I attempted to set the path in bashrc and cshrc for jdk. Now I am unable to login using the only user account I created at install. When I enter my password the login screens goes blank then my mouse pointer appears with the circling dashed loading symbol for a few secs and then brings me back to the login screen asking for my password again.
Recently I deleted files from my root/share folder in an attempt to remove a program which had made the system virtually unusable. Upon reboot of the system I accessed the partition I had just edited and I found that I was unable to login using the login manager, every time I hit login it just returns me to the same screen displaying the message: unable to start session.
I have a nagios server monitoring around a 1000 hosts in our office. To make things easier, i've integrated apache into Active Directory for the website authentication. This works perfectly, however the Nagios website uses alot of CGI scripts to display information I get the message below when trying to show CGI scripts with an AD user. Local users work fine. 403 Forbidden You don't have permission to access /nagios/cgi-bin/status.cgi on this server. I tried adding the AD users to the cgi.conf file within Nagios (which works for local accounts) but it doesn't seem to work even with this change.
