    Unable to Login to NFS RootFS


    Hi,

    I have created a new NFS filesyste - by copyng most of the files from
    the existing installed filesystem. The new one is of <1GB and i have
    retaing /etc as is.

    Now I am able to boot my another workstation with this NFS share as
    RootFS but I am unable to login as root !

    Also, OpenSuse is not accepting "single" kernel command line arg to get
    in to SU mode and change the password !

    I have even tried editing the shadow" file and made it an empty password
    for "root", still I am unable to login.

    Any pointers would be helpful and appreciate it.

    Regards,
    Abhay

    I'm not really sure what this has to do with SUSE Studio - perhaps you
    should ask this in the openSUSE forums' networking forum, as it really
    seems that this is more a networking issue than a SUSE Studio issue.

    If you report the post (click the "report" button - the triangle with the
    "!" in it), you can ask for one of the staff to move it.
