Cannot login directly through server console

Problem

root login is not happening directly from the server console

Cause

Check if OS hardening is done on the server

Resolution

For 64 bit servers:

Login to the server through putty
In /etc/pam.d/login files replace lib with lib64 and save the file.
vi /etc/Bastille/config
Search for ConfigureMiscPAM.consolelogin
Replace the line from ConfigureMiscPAM.consolelogin="Y" to ConfigureMiscPAM.consolelogin="N"
Make sure the root user is specified in the following line
ConfigureMiscPAM.consolelogin_accounts="root"
Reboot the server and check if root login is happening through the console.
