I am a new Tech at my job and have run into an issue with logging in as root. I did some research at work to find out that my complex system runs on CentOS, RedHat & RedHawk. I know after reading the cold build instructions that the users are created from the CentOS install but once logged in im using the RedHawk GUI. With all that said i will explain my problem...

I can login as a single user and open a terminal as root with no issues. When I try to login as root I get an authentication failure error. I searched in /var/log/messages and didnt see anything that stood out but more then willing to search again.

Thank You for any help you can provide.

Why would you need to log into GUI as root?
