I have created a new local account, "jira", using the Workgroup Manager on my fairly newly installed Max OS X Server. In the list there are now two accounts: my main account created during system setup, and one new.
I can access the server using ssh and the first account but when I try to ssh to the server ("ns") using the second account ("jira") I get the following result:
ns:Users koenig$ ssh jira@localhost Password: Permission denied (publickey,gssapi-keyex,gssapi-with-mic,keyboard-interactive).
I have for the sake or argument opted to connect to localhost here but the same applies when I try the FQDN.
I have tried to google for the error message but to no avail. I have also tried to match the two accounts in the Workgroup Manager and as far as I can see they are equivalent (but for one being administrator and the other just user).
