machine not allowing login thru virtual console, only thru ssh
I was recently faced with a strange situation with my RHEL3 machine.
The machine would not allow me to login from any of the virtual consoles, when I was physically present with the machine, but it allowed me to login through ssh over the network. When I tried logging in through root, using the virtual console, after asking for the password, an error of 'permission denied' would flash for a second before going back to the login console.
Can anyone tell me why was this happening?
