I do not find myself to be a newbie to anything other than Virtualmin/Webmin so I began by posting in this group area.
I have been testing the Webmin/Virtualmin now for a couple of months. Have three domains on the new server during this test that worked flawlessly. I just began this weekend pulling the trigger and moving sites over to this new server when I noticed a new oddity.
If I go to the Virtualmin control panel and select a domain and then click the Edit Mail and FTP Users link, it displays the users I had previously created. If I add a new user, either Email or FTP type, the user will initially show on the list but If I try to user the newly created user, I get access denied messages like the user does not exist. If I return to the User list page, the user account I just created is now gone.
This problem behavior exhibits itself on newly created domain accounts and existing domain accounts. It also happens on domain accounts that already have users created previously and on domain account where there is only the primary account. Existing user accounts do not seem to be affected but I have not tried modifing an existing account for fear the user account will go into this missing status.
One last thing to note, if I open a domain account and then click on any other user account, like I was going to edit their properties, and the simply click the Return to User List link, the libo user account will appear in the list again. From here I can seemingly delete this user and everything seems fine.

The only thing that has changed on this server is we have added 4GB RAM because it was doing a lot of swapping with only 1GB. I am not certain this has anything to do with it but I have learned to give as much detail as possible when asking for help…
Thank you in advance for any assistance you might be able to throw my way on this issue. If there are any details I have left out, please let me know and I will answer quickly…
