Question

CoreOS still asking for root password

  • Posted January 21, 2015

Hello,

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

Try: ssh -i ssh-private-key core@ip.address

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

Hello, there

As per the other comments, the user should be "core"and not “root”

You can ssh to the droplet with the following command:

  1. ssh core@DropletIP

If you want to specify the ssh-key you can also use the -iargument:

  1. ssh -i ~/.ssh/ssh-key core@DropletIP
