I am having two users in my CentOS installation
root user1 (name changed)
user1 is having root privilege also
Problem is, while I was working in Putty with user1 login, my PC had a power failure… 30 mins later when I got the power back on, I found user1 was having access denied when trying to login.
I logged in via root and I checked with command
and found user1 still login with my previous IP (my ISP gives dynamic IP). So I ran command
skill -KILL -u user1
I checked and found that user is logout…
Since then still I cant login to that user… I changed its password via
Even with that new password also, user1 cant be logged in…
Then I checked log file and I found following error
User user1 from xxx.xxx...xxxx not allowed because not listed in AllowUsers
What can I do ?
