I made the mistake of upgrading my Drobo5N’s firmware over the weekend from v3.something to v4.1.4-8. I then had a panic as I was unable to access the unit via ssh (…and I don’t have the data “shared” in the usual way, I just access via sshfs).
Eventually I was able to ssh in with the ‘admin’ account, and all my data was still there - main panic over.
HOWEVER, I am still unable to ssh in with my normal user accounts. The password set via dashboard doesn’t work. If I ssh in as ‘admin’ and sudo up to root, I am able to do “passwd dave” and the /etc/passwd file gets updated, but I still can’t ssh in. If I do some voodoo with ssh keys I can ssh in as ‘dave’, but at this point I can’t just run “passwd” as I get an error stating that passwd must be suid root… and even if I was able to run that, I’m not convinced it would accept the “Old password” I gave it - I certainly can’t sudo as ‘dave’ using the password I set as the admin->root user.
Has anyone else had this issue?
