I have a Debian Wheezy server running, and a test-backup was just run - However, it went the other way! I cleaned it up the best I could, but I'm getting a VERY annoying error now.
Root login is disabled via SSH. The user has to log in as a regular user, then execute
su to get Root access. When I log in as my user, I get the following message:
-bash: /etc/bash.bashrc: Permission denied I have no name!@server:~$
When I execute aa
$ whoami whoami: cannot find name for user ID 1000
/etc/passwd file, those user IDs do exist! The permissions on
/etc/passwd are 644, owned by
root:root. Checking on another server, the
/etc/bash.bashrc files match up the same, no changes required.
There is the silver lining in that I can
su into the root user, and access what I need, but I shouldn't need to do this. I cannot find any relevant log entries under
/var/log, as they just show the successful login attempts (
auth.log), but no errors. What can I do to allow the regular users to login again? Below is an exert of my
/etc/passwd file, showing that the user ID 1000 exists:
