VNC Console access with no password set
Is it possible to access a server via the Digital Ocean hosted VNC Console Access when you’ve not set up a password?
I created a server with SSH keys meaning that no root password is generated (or provided to me anyway). This works great, but today I needed to quickly SSH into the server from a machine that’s not set up in authorized_keys. I had to reset the root password via the DO web interface.
I am not expecting it to be possible, because effectively I am sat in from of the server with a keyboard and monitor and accessing it directly. However, I just through I’d ask, just in case!
In future I will create a sub user and make it a sudoer.
