Ive got a remote server with Centos and Ive been accessing ssh through Putty.
I can't log in as root user any more, just says Access denied. I've checked the secure log:
Oct 25 15:27:41 - sshd[-]: User root from -ip- allowed because not listed in AllowUsers
Oct 25 15:27:41 - sshd[-]: input_userauth_request: invalid user root
Oct 25 15:27:46 - sshd[-]: pam_unix(sshd:auth): authentication failure
; logname= uid=0 euid=0 tty=ssh ruser= rhost=-ip- user=root
Oct 25 15:27:48 - sshd[-]: Failed password for invalid user root from
-ip- port - ssh2
The sshd_config list does have 'root' in the Allowed list so I'm unsure why it wouldn't recognise that.
I was carrying out some changes so Im not entirely sure where the problem started, the latest I could remember is updating these files:
glibc i686 2.5-49.el5_5.6 updates 5.3 M
glibc-common i386 2.5-49.el5_5.6 updates 16 M
libbonobo i386 2.16.0-1.1.el5_5.1 updates 502 k
libpurple i386 2.6.6-5.el5_5 updates 8.3 M
nscd i386 2.5-49.el5_5.6 updates 165 k
