Arrow User and root passwords not recognised after adding packages


I am following a guide to install Squid and Squidguard on a server installed with Debian Jessie. Server install was fine, I could login as both a user and root. I installed samba krb5-user libpam-krb5 ntpdate winbind and configured krb5.conf. I did not get as far as testing Kerberos or adding the server to my domain. Having rebooted the server all users / passwords are ignored. Having typed the correct username, there is a request for the password. Once the correct password is entered it goes straight back to requesting a user name. If I force "recovery mode" at startup, the root password is accepted. I have tried re-installing the server from scratch 3 times and hit the same obstacle. Please can someone offer some advice.

0. Have you taken any steps, or tried anything, other than simply following the steps in this "guide" exactly the same way expecting different results? IF so, tell us what you ahve tried and what happened.
1. You do not mention the location of this "guide" you are following, so we really cannot infer what actions you have taken. Please provide a link or pointer to the guide in question.
2. Stop rebooting the server after installation and before domain membership is established.
3. examine that configuration, and any changed to PAM in particular. If local authentication is no longer supported and there is no domain trust to authenticate against you MIGHT get these symptoms.
4. examine the log files for security messages that might show what is happening during these authentication attempts.

With enough information we MAY be able to help you.
Gathering that information MAY enable you to help YOURSELF!
If you report information back here, enclose terminal contents, quotes from logs, or other verbatim information in quote tags so we can read the original without web reformatting.


Luck!

Have you done anything to affect the Shadow password suite, or Pam if you're on that? Have you checked integrity/permissions of config files?

Have you tried going in somehow (e.g install cd) and setting passwords? If you go in in recovery mode, you can just type 'passwd <user name>' and it allows you to set them.

Lastly, a clean install? If the problem persists over reinstalls, some stuff is being left behind.
