If the last part of the /etc/passwd file is /sbin/nologin, then that account will always be denied.....because funnily enough nologin is just that;). Same applies to /noshell. However, the ones with /bin/bash as the last term *should* be able to login....assuming that you know their passwd.

Let's take the last account:

cocoliso:x:1092:0::/home/cocoliso:/bin/bash

Login as root, and then reset the password for this account:

#passwd cocoliso

and enter a new passwd. (twice)

Log out, and then try logging in as cocoliso. That *should* work. If not, then let us know how it goes:)

Any particular error? Still got access denied?

Output from:

ls -al /home

does /home/cocoliso exist?

tail -f -n50 /var/log/secure

will give details as to the cause of the failure.
