Thanks for the suggestion, but this does not work.
After about 2 minutes I am brought back to the login prompt.

My guess is that the problem is in /etc/pam.d/system-auth.

 

Try changing the line that says something like this:

 

      account     required     /lib/security/$ISA/pam_unix.so

 

To

 

      account     sufficient   /lib/security/$ISA/pam_unix.so
