Password incorrect when logging into VMWare Server on Slackware
If you can not login to the VMWare Server web frontend, it may be due to a PAM problem, please see the Other knowledgebase article about how to install the PAM libraries.
Once installed you will need to alter the PAM library paths that VMware uses in
/etc/pam.d/vmware-authd.slack and create a new PAM file called
/etc/pam.d/other with the following content:
auth required /lib/security/pam_unix.so shadow nullok auth required /lib/security/pam_nologin.so account required /lib/security/pam_unix.so
You will need to restart VMWare server for any changes to take effect. Also check the logs for PAM errors.
