hello,

i was doing some testing and a customer notified me they were unable to change their own password, which is strange because i manually tested it and it worked before, it doesnt now.

the error thats thrown is "Permission check failed (/access/realm/pve, Realm.AllocateUser) (403)"


Im Using PVE realm and can change the password when logged in as root. Any ideas?

Hmm. D'oh! was hoping for a simple fix. If you need any more information from me about my setup please reply to this thread. I am subscribed to it.

I have tested the proposed fix (libpve-access-control_1.0-18) and it appears to work just fine.

Thanks so much!

How you you fix this? I can log in as root, but if i create a new user I cannot assign it a password, says the user does not exist

If you use 'PAM' realm, you also need to create the system users first. I suggest you use realm pve ('Proxmox VE authentication server') instead.
