I have a M1 MacBook. Today I wiped it and reloaded it (erase hard disk, reinstall Mac OS Big Sur). It creates a local administrator account during the prestage setup.
I log in as that administrator and create another local account using using users and groups.
The other local account has user folders, it shows up in users and groups
However, I can't sign in to any local accounts. Even if I then create another local account via JAMF, I still can't sign in. I just get the little shake of the screen as if I've entered a bad password (which I have not).
I can create one account, or 10 and none of them will let me sign in.

Ended up resolving it. My Mac was prior impacted by the No administrators bug and I previously always had to "erase Mac" in order to get the OS to load. When I loaded the Mac the first time today, it activated and it appeared that bug was gone, but yet I had problems signing in with local accounts.
I went back and reset the password and "erase Mac" like I did before and this time, it let me sign into extra local accounts.
