Default 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:

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?

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

Question

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.
