Anyone had this problem before?
Well, you could try putting in "passwd root" or "passwd user01", and see if it then prompts you for a password. If not, the passwords are probably kept in /etc/shadow. You can remove whatever password is there by editing that file, and removing everything between the first and second colons (
for a particular user. Then, that user will have no password when booting up, and you can see if things behave differently.
And, since you're using RHEL, have you contacted Red Hat support?? You have access to it with your purchase of RHEL.
