Hey,

I updated my proxmox dedicated server from 3.4 to 4.1-5 all went well, i then uploaded my old containers and used the GUI to update to the new LXC containers. I've then created the bridge to link my subnet to my Container.

This is where the issues start:
  • I can ping the Subnet ip with no issues
  • I use putty to connect to the subnet ip after entering my log in details i get Access denied
  • I use pct enter 101 and use that account to change the root password ( tells it it's changed) use putty again to reconnect and try again same error.
  • tried the above with another account other than root still the same.
Other issues that might be related, after starting the container and using pct enter 101 i start apache and attempt to connect to the subnet ip's website i get connection refused. There is no firewall rules set.

I'm really stuck, please save me :)

Comment out in lxc container's /etc/ssh/sshd_config the following statement:

Code:
#PermitRootLogin without-password
