SELinux denies console access for remote users if they are attempting to log in for the first time. This occurs because the user has not logged in before, so no entries exist for them in the userrolepartitions file.


Certain remote users may not be able to log in to the console.


-- Remote authentication is enabled. -- BIG-IP system user attempts to log in to the console as their first login.


Login as a remote user using SSH or the GUI.

Fix Information

Allow login to connect to MCP to announce remote user login and set user role partition access.
