Linux Alpine - default password & contextualisation


i’ve download the ALPINE LINUX VM from the marketplace and convert it into VMDK to import it into a vcenter. ALL is OK.

But i can’t connect on it because there is a password for the root user instead the information.

Can u send the password !


If you are talking about Alpine linux image then it’s written the following in its description:

This image is based of the Alpine Linux 3.6 cloud image with the OpenNebula contextualization package.
There is no password for the root account. To access the Virtual Machine, add an SSH public key to your user or the template and ssh to the root account.

Yes @knawnd it’s this is image. i’ve transform the KVM image into a VMWARE image. Now, there is a password for the root user.
