How to remove "reset root password"?
Upon logging into a new droplet the first time via SSH using an SSH Key I am being asked to reset the root password - I would like to disable this. Is this possible?
My scenario is this.
1/ Create a new droplet with an SSH key from an image via Java Api (This image has all the correct sshd_config settings - PermitRootLogin without-password and PasswordAuthentication no
2/ SSH into this box via JSch Java Api and perform some operations.
Step 2 would not be possible if there is a prompt to reset the root password. I can verify that the SSH key is setup correctly because when I attempt to SSH to the box the first time I am not asked for a password.
Any help would be greatly appreciated.
