root password reset and permission denied afterwards

  • Posted July 15, 2014

I am new to DO. After using ssh root@ip, yes, and prompted to reset the root password, the system automatically logged out. When I try to login in as root again with the new root password, the following error is given: ( I am using ssh -vvv id@ip )

debug2: we sent a password packet, wait for reply debug1: Authentications that can continue: publickey,password Permission denied, please try again.

Any suggestions? Thanks.
