Authentication service cannot retrieve authentication info - for new user
I created a new user on ubuntu. I edited the /etc/passwd and /etc/group
When I try to login to the user, I get this error
root@yosi-desktop:/etc# su - oracle
su: Authentication service cannot retrieve authentication info.
What do I miss? Other users on the system don't have this problem.
What exact steps did you take to create a new user? Normal ways (i.e. using 'adduser' utility) do not require manual editing of /etc/passwd or /etc/group.
I found the problem - I had to edit the /etc/shadow file. It works fine now. Thanks
