I have two suse 8.2 pro boxes and added approx 30 users to that system. It takes too long to do this with Yast so I did it with useradd which was ok so far. Once I change the users with usermod (especially the password with -p param) this user could not log on to the system anymore. Messages log said "wrong username or password".
Has anybody ever seen this before?

"usermod -p" wants the password encrypted, you did that ?
