No password prompt... Can't login...
Posted on 2000-06-01
My server no longer prompts me for a password when I try to login, neither from the console, or by telnet. All of the services seem to still be working (FTP, HTTP, DNS, etc.), but I cannot login. I type in my username at the login prompt, then hit enter. The cursor advances to the next line, but the password promt never appears for me to complete login. I've never been locked out of a linux box before, and I've been using Linux since 1994. I am a bit concerned, since this box is in production as the main DNS server for my company. Any help will be greatly appreciated. Thanks beforehand.
