CoreOS still asking for root password

January 21, 2015 5.6k views


I am a new user. I created an sshkey as the guide suggesteda and I added the public key while I was creating the droplet.

The problem is when I try to connect using "ssh root@(ipadress)" it still asks for a root password which I do not have.

Thank you

As indicated in the CoreOS documentation and in the tutorials on DigitalOcean, the user you should be using is not 'root' but 'core'.
