Centos 6.3. user accounts - unable to log in


I have root and a "general" account to log in servers. However, I prefer to have my own account to work with.

I created the user account and set the password, but when I log out and test my newly created user account, the server responses with incorrect password. .. actually the ssh session is terminated due to to many failed password attempts.

Ive used Unix and now Linux for years but havent had to do any real admin tasks. Any help would be appreciated.

ps there re.ally isnt an admin for this particular box .... believe it or not !!

Thanks !!

You could try ssh -vvv .... (one or more -v => more verbose)
