Cannot create account Inappropriate ioctl for device error

    Did the /home/user folder perhaps exist before you created the account? I've seen this in edge cases where it did and was owned by root:root, thus halting the account creation process. I've also seen times where it existed as a symlink but pointed to a device that no longer existed.

    The home folder does not exist before starting the account creation process.

    Hello, The error message you provided suggests this is a VPS and it may have reached the "quotaugidlimit" threshold, or some other VPS parameter limit imposed from the VPS node. If this is a VPS, please check with your VPS hosting provider to see if they can verify if any resource limits have been reached. Thank you.
