Unable to change password



Hi,

Last week we upgraded our 5.2 system with Kernel 2.0.36 to 2.2.11

Everything went OK (only a few solvable problems).

Today I created a new user. He should normal first change his password to

keep access to the system.

But he is not allowed.

So I tried it with my own account and got this error message:

[f.steinhauser@popeye linux-2.2.11]$ passwd

Changing password for f.steinhauser

(current) UNIX password:

New UNIX password:

Retype new UNIX password:

passwd: Permission denied

In the syslog I get this message:

Aug 30 14:33:46 popeye PAM_pwdb[24584]: cannot update default database for

user f.steinhauser

Can you help me with this. As root I can change the password for a user but

this is not what I want (of course)

 

Kind regards,

Franz
