domina login problems - log file help

Howdy all,

I have a Suse 10 box that was allowing domain login with active directory authentication. All was working fine until the user said it would not allow him into the box with the error "login failed".

I disjoined the box from the domain and readded it. Now it will act like it is logging in with a domain user (screen goes black for a few seconds) then it returns back to the initial login screen. It will allow me to log in via "safe mode" with domain account. It will also fully log in via local root account.

Any thoughts? Can someone point me to a log file? I am not seeing any error messages when the screen goes black so i don't know where to really search for help. Anything would be helpful.

The problem was that the /var/log/messagesXXX file filled up the disk space for the "/" partition. I deleted this file (about 15 gigs of data) and everything is working as it should be.
