Please check syslog (/var/log/auth.log or /var/log/syslog)

UNKNOWN in faillog means either the tty or the user is unknown.
(you can run /usr/bin/faillog to know which of the above cases)
In both cases, it indicates an inconsistency in your system.
At least if login cannot get the system's user information (getpwnam)
correctly, then you would not be able to login.
For the tty, it depends on the configuration.

When you created files, did you copy them from a real system, or just
created empty files.
Not all of them would have to be created.
