    No user can be su to from root, and if I use telnet (e.g. user:augusta) to
    login with augusta ID.
    It will pass my password and disconnect soon with "3004-009 Failed running
    login shell.Connection closed."

    And I'm sure the user's shell is exist and home directory is too.

    Best Regards.

    Do you mean that UserA cannot su to any other userid, or no user is able to
    su to UserA?

    Does it affect both "su" and "su -"?
