I have a Dell Poweredge running Ubuntu 13.04 in my office to serve up an interal web-app address system. It has been at least a 2 months possibly 3 since my last login. Everything is running great, but I can not login. I know I have the correct credentials because they are saved in putty.
Error simply says: Access Denied
What could possibly cause this to happen? Can it be fixed without pulling it off the shelf and hooking up monitors and keyboards etc (as a side-note it weighs something like 50+ pounds so I am not looking forward to that at all)?
