View Full Version : [ubuntu] Upgrade to 9.04 Borked Adduser

May 21st, 2009, 10:09 PM
Hi all,

I just upgraded an 8.04 LTS box to 9.04. Everything seems to work fine, except adduser and useradd. When I use adduser, I create the user and it asks for the user's Kerberos password. Since the user doesn't have a password, it barfs. When I use useradd, and specify a password, it creates the user, but that user can't log in. Further investigation finds that the password I specified is stored in /etc/shadow, in clear text. The GUI-based tools for creating users work fine.

Any idea what the problem might be?
