I was able to access the SC using root and the password. Now I can't!
Nothing's changed, only one user installed the VI on his PC but sure he didn't change anything?
Any ideas anyone?
Login via the console if you can just check to make sure sshd is running and that nothing has been modified from the sshd_config pertaining to root login. Possibly fatfinger the password or someone changed the password? This a pretty simple thign to verify services/config is running.
By default root access via ssh is disabled in 3.5.
Check in VC under the server configuration, security if ssh server access is enabled.
Go to the console and check the following settings in the "/etc/ssh/sshd_config" file (if you want to allow root acces (I wouldn't) and if you don't use public/private key authenticationt):
If not, add them and restart the ssh daemon "/etc/init.d/sshd restart".
If everything else looks good and it looks like you need to reset the root password petri has a good web page on how to that
