Jun 20 03:18:04 localhost sshd[512]: Failed password for iamid from 10.x.x.1 port 44241 ssh2

Jun 20 03:18:04 localhost sshd[513]: fatal: Access denied for user iamid by PAM account configuration

check /var/log/secure, got above messages.

tips to troubleshooting:

  1. /etc/nologin exists or not, if exists, remove it.

  2. /etc/security/access.conf, whether your group/user exists in allow list.

if still have issue, turn on DEBUG for sshd.
