    Thread moved to Server Platforms.

    Before we get to troubleshooting your problem, are you are aware that 10.10 is an old, unsupported version? I'd recommend upgrading, if possible, to a newer version of Ubuntu server.

    You are more likely to get useful support if you are using a more recent version of Ubuntu.

    Please post the output of:
    Code:
    ls /etc/ | grep "lock"

    When you have sorted out this single issue, please do not ask other users to spend their volunteer time attempting to provide support for such an old release.

    Thanks.

    What was the output from the command?
    Is this the same computer that you mentioned in your other thread?

    If your disk is full or there are problems with your disk, then you are likely to run into problems adding new users. It would be a good idea to resolve those issues first.

    My recommendation to upgrade to a newer version of Ubuntu stands.

    Thread closed.
