unable to setuids via ssh

    Anytime a client tries to ssh in to his account, he gets this message before getting disconnected

    "unable to setuids"

    I am able to duplicate this. Their account has jailed shell enabled. I do not get this on my admin / wheelgroup accounts otherwise.

    Any ideas?

    I installed systat via rpm (as iostats was down). Probably has nothing to do with this as it obviously didn't resolve the issue :D

    Anyone know about this?

    One more question in the meantime;

    Is there any way for a client to directly edit his Exim filter file directly from bash without using CPanel?

    Regarding the EXIM filter for domains

    I'm referring to /etc/vfilters directory, there's 1 file for each domain on the shared machine.

    I believe (although I am not sure exactly about how you have configured chroot) that
    "ln -s /etc/vfilters/ /home/artistic/"
    would do the trick. Correct?

    I've seen a similiar issue on a customer's VDS server after he enabled "shell fork bomb protection" from within WHM. Do you have that enabled?

    This is happening again.

    I tried with and without shell fork bomb protection on and off, same problem as explained below:

    Port 22002
    Protocol 2
    #ListenAddress ::

    #LoginGraceTime 2m
    PermitRootLogin no
    #StrictModes yes
    #MaxAuthTries 6

    "sshd has failed, please contact the sysadmin."

    I can login via the wheel user/pw but it gives invalid root password when I "su -" into root mode, yet the same root works for whm without a problem.

    /dev/null is chmodded 666 also
