I'm trying to create a local user on a new Ubuntu box. I'm unable to change the password, and I keep getting the error below. The user gets added to the shadow file, but I can't get it to set a password. How can this be fixed?
admin@theserver:~$ sudo useradd jamz [sudo] password for admin: admin@theserver:~$ sudo passwd jamz passwd: Authentication token manipulation error passwd: password unchanged admin@theserver:~$
