Default zone logins

Hi All,

I am quite new to solaris and just having a play around ;-). I have been looking into zones (quite like the idea of them) but have become a little stuck when trying to add users in a zone and login to them via zlogin.

[[email protected] ~]$ zoneadm list -cv
0 global running / native shared
4 zone1 running /export/home/zones/zone1 native share

zlogin as root shows I have a user and will ask for password on 1st login

# grep admin /etc/passwd
# grep admin /etc/shadow

When i zlogin as that user I get asked for the password and then it drops the session.

# zlogin -l admin zone1
[Connected to zone 'zone1' pts/3]
Choose a new password.
New Password:
Re-enter new Password:

[Connection to zone 'zone1' pts/3 closed]

If i log into the zone and su into the user 'admin' and complete a passwd I get 'permission denied'

# su admin
bash-3.00$ passwd admin
Enter existing login password:
Please try again
New Password:
Re-enter new Password:
Permission denied

All permissions on the shadow and passwd file are default. SO..... Can anyone tell me what I am doing wrong?

Thanks in advance!
