You have been subscribed to a public bug: I found an issue when installing Ubuntu via IPXE and the network-console (the SSH installer). It is not possible any more to set a password in the preseed file.
The commands d-i network-console/password password somepasswd d-i network-console/password-again password somepasswd are ignored and the file /etc/shadow shows no encrypted password for the installer user. The issue occurrs on Ubuntu 19.04 and 19.10, on Ubuntu 18.10 and below, this problem does not exist. ** Affects: ubuntu Importance: Undecided Status: New ** Tags: installer network-console -- Installation network-console no password is set https://bugs.launchpad.net/bugs/1851821 You received this bug notification because you are a member of Ubuntu Bugs, which is subscribed to Ubuntu. -- ubuntu-bugs mailing list email@example.com https://lists.ubuntu.com/mailman/listinfo/ubuntu-bugs
