I'm auto installing ubuntu according to this
I use the following salted hash of root for a password:
identity: hostname: ubuntu-00 password: "$6$FhcddHFVZ7ABA4Gi$9l4yURWASWe8xEa1jzI0bacVLvhe3Yn4/G3AnU11K3X0yu/mICVRxfo6tZTB2noKljlIRzjkVZPocdf63MtzC0" # root username: ubuntu # root doesn't work
but the salt "FhcddHFVZ7ABA4Gi" does not get stored in /etc/shadow which ends up like this:
if I edit this and put the salt in to the hash then I can login with ubuntu and root.
Why is it being removed???
