hello
i have changed something on the Network settings.
Then i had to reboot. After this the server was not visible in the network.
On the Console i changed again the settings to Eth0 , IP, Network, mask Gateway.
After this change i could reach the Server with telnet and Log in.
With the GUI (Webbroser) i could now also access and when entering the pwd i got a error:
Login failed. Please try again.
user name is root password ist copy pasted from a file so i am sure the password is correct.

what could be the reason any help or suggestion?

have a nice day
vincent

hmmm
no answer? what should i do - restart all and reinstall proxmox.
Would this be the solution if there would be working V-Servers, hope not?

Hello vikozo,

connect to console and define a new user (e.g. "mrholmes") as follows:

Code:
useradd mrholmes
passwd mrholmes
<specify password>
pveum useradd mrholmes@pam
pveum aclmod / -roles Administrator -users mrholmes@pam

Now it should be possible to login at WEB-GUI and have full access with user "mrholmes"

Kind regards

Mr.Holmes

P.S.: I tried to provocate your problem removing the root-user - did not succeed, even I deleted it from /etc/pve/user.cfg In other words the user root MUST exist, password is always the linux password. In your case something seems to be destroyed. However, the method described above is at least an attempt.
