Ticket #5712 (closed defect: fixed)
vrdp authentication (External) for multiple users fail
|Reported by:||Perryg||Owned by:|
|Version:||VirtualBox 3.1.0||Keywords:||Authentication failed|
Description (last modified by frank) (diff)
In previous version it has been able for different users to authenticate (external) as long as they had valid accounts on the Host system. Now it appears that this does not work. Has something changed that does not allow this now? I have read the Users manual and it still states that anyone that has an account on the host would be authenticated, but this just is not the case now.
I have tried this on both Windows host and Linux host and while I am able to authenticate if I use the login that started the host it works, but if I use a different login (as is the case with multiple sys admins) it reports back a failure.
The failure error is: perry-laptop unix_chkpwd: password check failed for user (bob) Dec 9 12:49:02 perry-laptop VirtualBox: pam_unix(login:auth): authentication failure; logname= uid=1000 euid=1000 tty= ruser= rhost= user=bob
The uuid and euid are the ones for the user that started the host and the guest which do not represent the actual uuid and euid of the person logging in (1002)
I have also validated that both users are in the shadow file and even used the broken_shadow statement but the outcome does not change.
Log file showing both logins attached and One success and one failed. Please let me know if you need more information.
