    Even though a user is added to the wheel group in WHM, and jailshell for that user is off, I get the following error when trying to use su:
    Code:
    su: cannot set user id: Resource temporarily unavailable
    Any ideas as to what is wrong? How do I fix this?

    Another problem I am having is with who and w. When I run them they never show who is logged in, always reporting zero users. This is a clean install of CentOS and therefore I do not think it is a rootkit. Could this have something to do with the fact that my server is a VPS, and certian network options needs to be set?

    This is genrally caused when a user reaches the maximum number of processes (ulimit). Have you adjusted this for any users or systemwide ?

    If yes, you will have to contact your Hosting company to make the necessary on your VPS from the Hardware node.

    I checked Virtuozzo and the parameter that limits the number of processes you can have running is not set. Therefore I don't think that is the source of the problem.
