Hi I'm attempting to change a user's password. So I connect as root and just
Here I've got a little prompt, I enter a new password, twice and I get this :
So far so good. However if I try to login as Joe@webserver or to ssh joe@webserver ls (for example). It asks for my password, which I enter. I get the prompt three times and
permission denied(publickey, keyboard-interactive)
Is it possible that the person that originally created that user put some weird restrictions on it? I checked the shadow and passwd files (without changing anything ofc) and everything looks fine.
Sorry if my question is not relevant or if I haven't browsed enough but I've been searching since yesterday why or how this could happen and really can't wrap my mind around it.
