I have installed Pinet on Ubuntu 18.04 in Oracle VirtualBox and created about 8 users. My RPI B+ has the PiBoot files on a 32Gb SDHC card and i get a login screen when i boot it up. Yet when i type any username and pwd i get an "invalid password error" . i created a csv file and imported the users into Pinet and when i boot the server i see all the users. but i always log in with the main username.
What am i doing wrong or is Pinet not ready for Ubuntu 18.04?
Could the log in issue be because i'm using Oracle VirtualBox instead of installing Ubuntu on a desktop / laptop / server?
I created another host in Oracle VirtualBox with 16.04 yet the Pinet install always fails at the end stage with an error " the install has encountered an error and i need to install Ubuntu anew and install pinet again".
I'm stuck now. May day may day
Whoops, dropped off the forums for a few days (to launch a weather balloon with some schoolkids of all things) and I miss a PiNet question
Thanks @ejolson for the poke out.
This one is certainly an odd one, not heard of anyone having issues like this in a while.
A few things to try
- Run the "Refresh-System" option in the "Other" menu in PiNet.
- Run the following command on the PiNet server in a terminal
Followed by running the "NBD-recompress" in the "Other" menu in PiNet
- If the above 2 ideas don't work, can you try and SSH into the PiNet server from a Raspberry Pi running normal standalone Raspbian? Using a command like
The key thing to check is if that lets you log in or not.
Let me know how you get on with the above. If none of them work, then we can move on to "Plan C".
