    password change and permission denied

    932700
      Hi.

      we have a problem that can't change general user's passowrd.

      tried two ways ,but couldn't change....

      1.general user changes his own password
      2.switch to root user and changes general user password

      this is the following massage when we did it.

      message:*unexpectable problem has occured. couldn't change the password databese. permission denied.*

      Then,check the file's permission and compared to other servers we can change the password.
      but, there are no problems. i think.....

      # ls -ltr passwd
      -rw-r--r-- 1 root sys 13:24 passwd
      # ls -ltr shadow
      -r-------- 1 root sys 11:19 shadow
      # ls -ltr nsswitch.conf
      -rw-r--r-- 1 root sys nsswitch.conf

      do anyone have some ideas to solve this problem?

      Thank you
