530 Login incorrect

I upgraded my Suse linux server and installed a complete new server with suse ver 11. I copied the passwd and shadow files from the old Suse 10 to the new Suse 11 server (/etc)
Now I get "530 Login incorrect" error when I try to FTP into an account with correct username and password.

Can someone help?

Have you also copied the group information from "/etc/group" and its respective shadows?

Further, is there anything in "/etc/passwd" which was on the old machine but not on the new? Things like: home directory (with proper permissions), alternate login shells (i.e. ksh instead of bash), etc. ?

I hope this helps.
