Unlock A LUKS Encrypted Root Partition Via SSH On Ubuntu - cannot log in
 
hello,

I follow this howto: http://howtoforge.com/unlock-a-luks-...-ssh-on-ubuntu
everything is fine until I try to log in remotely to unlock the volume, this is what I'm getting:
http://images27.fotosik.pl/258/4e41cf7f4016ceb8med.png
and its of no use, it doesn't take user's password
as you can see network works
what can possibly be wrong with that?

thanks
Marc

Can you check the logs, or can't you log in at all?

I can log on the machine, I cannot log in remotely via putty - it just says wrong password

then it is surely the registtering problem , try to chek it definitely that your administrated passwords are right.

there's only one user and I'm sure im typing it right

ok I figured out, that it works on one condition:

DO NOT DELETE ROOT PASSWORD using
sudo passwd -l root like it's explained in the howto

but what if I don't want the root account to be enabled?

You can become root by typing
Code:

sudo su

did you at least read what I wrote? how using 'sudo' can help me entering password?

I have the same problem.
I can log on by tty, I cannot log on remotely via ssh - it just says wrong password. but I definitely use the same user name and the same password.:mad:
