I have configured LDAP server on RHEL 5.2 Linux. Client is unable to change its password from client linux box. I think there is PAM configuration problem in /etc/pam.d/system-auth file. What will be the exact entries in this file.
I am running ubuntu 10.04 64 bit with Centos Directory Server centralizedauthentication tool. I can log in just fine with my ubuntu client, however when go to my Directory Server and tell it to require a password change on reset for any of my users, the ubuntu client doesn't require the user to reset their password. the reason I need this to work is so I can reset a users password from the Directory server and then have it use what I set it to for their next login attempt but then require them to set their own password. After days of searching I have only found out that it can be done by setting the option in Directory Server but Ubuntu 10.04 seems to just ignore the option. I am using the libnss-ldapd and libpam-ldapd packages on the Ubuntu client because the libnss-ldap and libpam-ldap didn't work at all, what am I missing?
I installed SLES 10.2 with SAMBA 188.8.131.52 to retire our old Microsoft Windows 2000 Server and save some money. All was fine until last week when our chief asked to me to set password expiration for all clients. This morning, all users cannot logon because, when they logon, windows asks to change password and then it gives error error "Access Denied".
hello i am trying to change my password, but when i type in the new password i get this:"The password is longer than 8 characters. On some systems, this can cause problems. You can truncate the password to 8 characters, or leave it as it is."my question is what kind of problem could i get and how can i change so i have to log in every time i start the computer?
On my linux machine, I've enforced a password expiry policy every 45 days. So, today when I tried to ssh to the host, I get the typical "WARNING: Your password has expired". Fine, no big deal. But when I enter my new password and confirm, instead of giving me a login prompt, it tells me passwd all auth tokens updated successfully, then next line, "Connection to <host> closed". I can re-ssh back into that host and all is well from here, but it's a nuisance having to go through the extra step. Is this something in the /etc/ssh/sshd_config somewhere or perhaps a PAM config issue?
Running Fedora 10 server. ssh login over Internet. Verify users are complaining they canno change their account password after they login in. They need to be able to change their password as all users have the same initial password. Makes sense, right? Shell lets you go through the motions and then displays the following message:
passwd: Authentication service cannot retrieve authentication info
This is concerning the normal login password at command line by changing via the 'passwd' command. Is there a way to change the type of passwords used? For example, the majority of linux distros use MD5. In Slackware or Centos, where would I change the security setting to go from MD5 to DES or some other encryption?
After my windows computer died of old age, I was given this computer. It has Linux Mint 9 Isadora on it. I am trying to learn how to use it. The update and other functions are locked out with a password. Is it possible to change it without reinstalling the entire Os.

I want to know how to change a password to an user account. Can someone give me the syntax on how to do this? I was using usermod but it's not working (usermod -p 123456 user1). Is there other way beside usermod? I am using RHEL5.

regarding the file permissions of /etc/passwd in fact it has permissions like rw-r--r--so it says others have only read only permissions but my questions is if others has read only permissions on /etc/passwd file.how they are able to change their password i.e others are able to change their passwords then how it is possible.
hi to all, i am a newbie in linux and i am using CentOS 5 and our office just transferred this responsibility on my job and still have no idea on how to change the username and password on squint. the one incharge was already resigned and did not turn-over the procedures.
I work on a product that have to start automatically an application. Running Opensuse 11.2 So in the inittab I have : 1:2345:once:/root/Velox/VeloxBoot.sh 2:2345:respawn:/sbin/mingetty tty2
In the VeloxBoot.sh, if I don't press any key, my application starts after a timeout. If the user presses a key I want to have a login prompt. Unfortunately, if I start /bin/login, I have a prompt with login, but once I enter my login, it does not ask for a password and it says wrong password
I'm really new to Linux so this will probably sound like a pretty naive question to most users, but how do you change the root password?To install Java, I have to type # su into Terminal,which then asks for the password.What's weird is that when I start typing a password, no characters show up. I don't know if this is supposed to happen or not.I've found a bunch of different sites on the Internet that explain how to change the root password, but none of them seem to work for my specific work station.
I've got Ubuntu 9.10 64 bit. In the GRUB boot menu, I can choose to boot normal or in recovery mode (I'm led to believe older versions don't have this option).I've tried typing # sudo passwrd into Terminal, but I already have a root password set up apparently, so I can't change it there.
I have a brand new install.I was doing some housekeeping and made a more sure password.Something went wonky and I got locked out.So I booted to root and changed the password.I'm back in the box now.But, my keyring password no longer matches my user password.So every time I want to do something I am asked for my old password.How do I change my keyring password to match my login password?
I suppose that my main Linux user account password serves as my SSH password as well. Is there a way I can modify this? As it turns out, I'd like to have a REALLY secure SSH password for obvious reasons, but a less secure local password, as it makes typing in passwords a heck of a lot easier on a machine. Is there a way I can change my account password in SSH without changing my Linux user password?
