I seem to have found a bug in lucid but it is so basic that I hesitateIf you need me to try your bug in my Lucid I will try to do what you
to report it in case I just being stupid.
I created a new user using System Administration Users and Groups but
am unable to login as that user. I get an authentication error. I
have tried creating several users and have double checked passwords
but to no avail.
In auth.log I see
piglet gdm-session-worker: pam_winbind(gdm:auth): request
wbcLogonUser failed: WBC_ERR_AUTH_ERROR, PAM error: PAM_USER_UNKNOWN
(10), NTSTATUS: NT_STATUS_NO_SUCH_USER, Error message was: No such
In addition in what may be a related or separate bug if I try to
change the password of the user fred using
sudo passwd fred
passwd: System err
and in auth.log
Mar 26 12:50:28 piglet sudo: colinl : TTY=pts/0 ; PWD=/home/colinl ;
USER=root ; COMMAND=/usr/bin/passwd fred
Mar 26 12:50:28 piglet passwd: pam_winbind(passwd:chauthtok):
valid_user: wbcGetpwnam gave WBC_ERR_DOMAIN_NOT_FOUND
I can't find either of these in launchpad.
characters long. before there used to be a requirement for at least 6
characters (i think) and the bug seems to be that is let you create the
user with the short password and as a consequence another sub system may
be confused. have you tried lengthening the password to >6 characters?
just a thought.
