Help. I have an issue adding accounts to a centos box of joy that has
otherwise been 100% reliable.
Basically if I run a "useradd test" as root it returns useradd: unable to
lock password file.
There is a /etc/passwd.lock file:
[root at bill etc]# more passwd.lock
PID USER PRI NI SIZE RSS SHARE STAT %CPU %MEM TIME CPU COMMAND
6697 root 25 0 22672 22M 612 R 47.2 1.1 1:02 1 useradd
Eating lots of cpu... but doing what?
If anyone has any clues I'd really appreciate the help :)
