unable to login from remote

Hi All,

I have one rx2660 server (11 v3) and recently installed fresh OS on that. I am getting issue that i am not able to login to the server from remote except root user.I am able to login with ssh and telnet from remote as root user only.
I have created other users but not able to login with them.
Appreciating your reply.
see other users passwd entries:

shikhar:Z/D.dhvgmXaTY:108:20::/home/shikhar:/sbin/sh
test1:PdNo7FFlgHoiI:109:20::/home/test1:/sbin/sh
test2:r.VF0vPtfXS6g:110:20::/home/test2:/sbin/sh

Re: unable to login from remote

Hello,

Are you able to log in from the local machine using test users?

ssh -l test1 localhost

Best regards,

You should check /var/adm/syslog/syslog.log for any messages.

Re: unable to login from remote

Hi,

Are there the user's directories (i.e: /home/shikhar)?

Please check the password file consistency:
#pwck

Re: unable to login from remote

"not able to login as other users"

what error do you get ?

also, what happens if you login as root and su to the other users ? this would test their home dirs and /etc/passwd entries ...

Re: unable to login from remote

Hi,
are your server running properly?
run who -r command to see the current run level.

is there any /etc/nologin file exist and any /etc/default/security setting?

please cross check once.

Thanks
