I wonder if anybody might be able to help me with a vserver-related
I set up a remote host-server, now hosting up to 3 vservers with each a
singular ip-address. These vservers were set up by copying and renaming a
"master-vserver" and its configuration file.
To access these vservers via ssh I had to add 3 "ListenAddress" entries in
the host's sshd-config file and change the sshd-config file in each of the
vservers to the appropriate "ListenAddress" IP-Address. This works fine, all
the vservers and the host-server can be accessed via ssh.
My problem is that you can't "su" within one of the vservers. Each vserver
accepts ssh-connections either as root or as one of the guest accounts. But
if I login via ssh as one of the guest-accounts and try to "su" to become
root all I get is an "su : Authentication failure". Logging in in the
"master-vserver" as a guest and doing "su" is successful.
It's obvious that I missed and/or did mix up something, but I can't think of
a reason for such a strange behavior.
It would be great if anybody could give me a hint to solve this weird problem!
Thanx in advance
