I'm trying to setup postfix with imap on a vserver. Now, I'm trying to create the first user/mailbox. The vserver runs Debian. I tried to login to the Cyrus administration console with cyradm, but to no avail. Search results on the internet advise me to use the cyrus account. The following steps are performed:
Let's pretend the password will be set to pass1234. ;-) Then - logged in as root - run:
cyradm -u cyrus localhost
Then enter the password 'pass1234', this yields:
Login failed: authentication failure at /usr/lib/perl5/Cyrus/IMAP/Admin.pm line 119 cyradm: cannot authenticate to server as cyrus
The same happens if I do a 'su - cyrus' before, i.e. not running as root.
All I want to accomplish now is to get into that console so that I can create a mailbox. Are there any other places (config files) or tools that I can use to manage Cyrus specific passwords?
Thanks for any hints,
