gsiems, I do have a working machine and not working machine side by side, but neither have a /var/lib/aide directory.

Yes I can run both the su - and su - username and get a prompt.

No I cannot ssh in. The session disconnects immediately.

No selinux/apparmor...installed busybox, symlinked it to /bin/ash, changed my /etc/passwd and still the same result.

Yep, I can chroot that's how I've been getting in to check the stuff ewwhite was having me look at. What do you mean by static shell? Thanks!

My output looks the same (same libraries and same versions) with the exception of the addresses they are pointing to...for instance, the first library listed in your output points to 0x00007fffb57ec000, while in mine it points to 0x00007fff401ff000. Probably not a big deal but just wanted to point it out.

I did in fact have a lot of libc6 error after a kernel update / reboot (this machine was converted from an XVA to a VHD and I needed to remove the xen kernel & install the standard el5 one) and that's when I performed the yum update in a chroot. I ran the two commands above & get the same output from the first, and no output from the second.

/etc/pam.d appears to be fine (I'm comparing it to a working CentOS server I set up the same day as this one)...check the pastebin for /etc/pam.d/login: pastebin.com/rUig4qfn (this appears fine as well).

I am unable to log in as any unprivileged user as the same thing happens. When I enter the correct password it pops me right back to the login prompt, when I enter the wrong password, I receive "login incorrect."

comment CentOS 5.8 why does my /etc/hosts file mess up after a reboot?
Figured it out..turns out a Citrix script was writing to the /etc/hosts file and not able to pick up on the proper IP..instead of trying to figure out why, I just commented out the line. Thanks anyway for the help :)!

I did, the IP still blanks out after every reboot. Quite odd actually. See my ifcfg-seth0 & /etc/hosts file configuration as well if it's helpful: pastebin.com/raw.php?i=UGmEe4ft

Gotcha. I have a static IP set in my /etc/sysconfig/network-scripts/ifcfg-seth0 and my hostname set in /etc/sysconfig/network as well as /etc/sysctl.conf. Tried manually creating an A record on my DNS server but still no dice.
