I have faced same problem. Please try the password and root username two or more times with the console screen. Then It will show you password resetting option. Then change the password as you want. then enjoy console access. Thank you. Cheers!
I've changed all my login accesses to SSH key login only since I was root-compromised sometime ago.
The problem is that while accessing my server via online console, it prompts to type in password.
How should I login without password?
