Hi,

When a user tries to change his/her password you get the following error : passwd: Authentication token manipulation error. I am running SLES 11.2 on S390X. Any ideas how to get past this problem.

This is what the /etc/passwd file looks like (Extract that shows the user account that tries to change password)

venumadhavp:x:5400:5008:venumadhavp:/home/venumadhavp:/bin/bash


The /etc/shadow file (Extract that shows the user account that tries to change password):

venumadhavp:$2y$10$Z4F7wZOsPL2g/YtKpcC2YuVa.eT2P6nPJfXxda35ZNbzi.3FQCiJC:15769:7:3 2:7:::


Any help will be appreciated.
Regards,
Kobus
