> I have two suse 8.2 pro boxes and added approx 30 users to that system. It takes too long to do this with Yast so I did it with useradd which was ok so far. Once I change the users with usermod (especially the password with -p param) this user could not log on to the system anymore. Messages log said "wrong username or password".
> Has anybody ever seen this before?
if you change the password, did you use usermod -p CRYPTEDPASSWORD
or did you use a plaintext password? if plaintext, read man usermod
