sshd[22803]: error: PAM: Authentication failed - has anyone seen this message?

Greetings all;

Wondering if anyone out there has seen this message in working with ssh. How did you resolve this error, any help would be appreciated.

Thanks again

when we get that error, it's usually because the password has expired or some other reason that the user may have been deactivated.

If you are not using PAM then take it out of the sshd config ( it may lead you to the real issue ).

Typicall issue:
invalid/incorrect public keys
invalid permissions on $HOME/.ssh

Did the account work before and now has stopped ? or has it yet to work correctly ?

thanks for all the responses, it turned out to be a permission problem.
