[Others]initial root password for ubuntu installation

Created#
More Posted time:Dec 26, 2016 20:55 PM
I'm a total beginner here. I just purchased the starter plan and fired up my first Ubuntu instance.
It's running and I'm trying to SSH in as root.... and realized I don't know the root password. I've been clicking around trying to figure this out for a while. Could someone point me in the right direction? Whenever I've installed Ubuntu on my own physical servers, I've had a chance to set the root password. I'm not sure what to do at the moment.

Hi World!

i have the same question and i fix it

I created an account precisely because I wanted to see how Aliyun worked. I was in the same situation as you. that's what I had to do to connect with my first machine on Aliyun.

- Deploying the VM
- Blocks ICMP V4 (yes always with me)
- We modify the information of the machine
- Reset password
- Restarting the machine
- And here we can connect in SSH

If you connect with VNC on the machine before you change informations you always see the first hostname like that : zb464.... and after reboot it is ok with your new password.

enjoy

Use "root", not "Root". Case matters.

You can modify it from the console after the instance is created.

I managed to figure it out. I reset the password for the instance under the More menu for the instance in the ECS control panel. Then restarted the instance and was able to login as root.
