    I have just installed cPanel on another server and root access works fine with WHM or SSH but not when login through a console/terminal to a local machine.

    Any clue?

    No - standalone server and I have physical access to it.

    Have you tried to SSH in then passwd root (to something simple) then login from the console?
    There is no reason that your should be locked out of the console like this.
