Disabled a standard user account but did not opt to delete files. Later, tried to enable the account. At that time, a password had to be selected so entered a different one from the earlier one. Now, at the log-in screen the user account appears but cannot log in using the new password or the old password. Tried many tricks but still could not let the user log into the account.
We have a test server that does allow challenge-response authentication. I don't want to disable that, but when I create a new user account I ask users to send me a public key, and want to force users to set the password the first time they log in with keypair authentication.
I accidentally disabled my user account. I've changed the administrator password and when I reboot, the log in "user 1" comes up and when I type in my password it won't let me log in. It says that my account is disabled and I should contact my system administrator.
In Linux and other UNIX-like computer operating systems, the root account is the administrator account. A user with root privileges can perform many tasks that a standard user account cannot. In current editions of Fedora 17, the idea of a disabled root account is a foreign one.
But come Fedora 18, the next stable release, the root account will be disabled by default.
