HI Alexandre,

would you mind to send text mails instead of html - that is easier to handle for me.

Also, we should send all those mails to pve-devel list (added now)

Do you get any error in the browsers (use firebug or something similar to debug)

Also try 'pvesh' (a command line interface for the API):

# pvesh
entering PVE shell - type 'help' for help
pve:/> get access/domains
200 OK
      "comment" : "Proxmox VE authentication server",
      "realm" : "pve",
      "type" : "builtin"
      "comment" : "Linux PAM standard authentication",
      "realm" : "pam",
      "type" : "builtin"

Does that work?

The correct pve username is 'root at pam'

first: update the pve-access-contol package (just uploaded a fix).

then take a look at:

# pveum help useradd

and try:

# pveum useradd testuser at pve -p

(then type the password)
