Cannot connect into Root, password acces denied
Hi, i see on the real opensolaris web site that is attemp some more of 1000 people. After my installation, i reboot and i connect to my account with the same password from the installation. After, i want to connect my laptop to my wireless connection but its asking my the root, i enter the same password from the login screen but don't work at all. Testing other like : User : root ; Password : opensolaris or jack jack... don't work at all.
After reboot on one of my ubuntu (yes i use some multiboot like 3 ubuntu, w7, Hackintosh iatkos s3v2 and Opensuse) I found on the wiki of opensolaris some user mod command. I reboot on opensolaris, open session, open terminal and does the following command :
#usermod -R root username
I work and its ask for reboot or log out, i log out. Reopen the session and don't work (damn!).
I use the b plan :
#rolemod -K type=normal root
Acces denied, you don't have the permission...
I cannot say exactly the same word of the terminal because internet don't work and i cannot acces zfs partition on ubuntu maverick and mount other file system on openindiana because it don't found one...

Yata !!! (Japanese traduction : I did it !!!)
First I cannot mount my partition on live dvd. I boot the last installation on hdd. And i loggin my session. Open terminal, does
- sudo -s
I type the new password for fgt1 (me)
root# passwd root
Type the new password for the root.
Test it and work !!!
Now I have root permission.
Finally, I think it is a problem on the installation program for cryption on /ect/shadow
I think than the bug be at 50 % :D
My problem was result but not for other !!!

Thanks for the update. I've repeated the issue. Seems to be installer related.
'sudo passwd root' to change root's passwd.
Possible dupe of issue #204 as had to do 'usermod -P "Primary Administrator" username' before pfexec would work as normal user.
