Error on login....how do I fix this?

So, I have a IDSM-2 module in a 6513 switch. When I try to login to the device I get the follow error:

login: PAM Failure, aborting: Critical error - immediate abort

This looks like a Linux error, at least Google searchs show that it happens in linux systems...which, I believe, the IDSM-2 is built upon.

So, how do I fix it?

Thanks,

Mike

Re: Error on login....how do I fix this?

Your order of operations are:

1. Reload the IDSM-2 (from the host router, "hw-module module N reset")

2. Reload the IDSM from the maintenance pratition:

"hw-module module N reset cf:1" (to boot the maintenance partition)

and either upgrade (url of your file server holding a new image required) or restore.
