SLES 11 root password does not update immediately
I have a SLES 10 system and a SLES 11 system. When I change the root password on the SLES 10 system, I can immediately log into root with the new password. When I change the password on the SLES 11 system, it takes 5-10 minutes before I can login with the new password. During that time, I can log in using the previous root password. The passwd file does update when I change the password, I just can't log into root with that password for a few minutes.
I think it is probably a setting rather than a version issue.
Does anybody what might be set to cause the delay to root password in SLES 11?
