I've set up virtual users paired with a SQL-configured pam file on CentOS, but logging in with system users no longer work. How would I make it so system users can still login when configured with virtual users? Would this be in the pam file?

You can configure PAM to accept either MySQL or passwd authentication, probably using the sufficient option like so:

auth    sufficient  pam_mysql.so
auth    sufficient  pam_unix.so use_first_pass

You probably need to configure the account type similarly.
