I need to run a stand alone converter job on a physical server i have running redhat 5. This requires root access because an account with sudo abilities doesn't work with the software. I've done this many times before on other machines and not had any problem but today I'm trying to do it to one server and it just isn't taking.
Things I have checked:
roots ability to login locally
These are all working fine, but it feels like maybe I'm missing something simple that is keeping root from being able to have ssh access.
EDIT: Turns out there was a change in /etc/security/access.conf that I didn't know about. Removed that entry and everything was sorted.
