If you pass the "useradd" command any password with parameter "-p" be
sure it is already encrypted! Else you have a plain text password in the
/etc/shadow file. Obviously then a login will fail. If you created new
user accounts followed by setting the password with command "passwd
$username", then all should be proper. Just take care you have not
accidentally caps-lock on.
