I am trying to complete the instructions for Installing and configuring cygwin sshd, part of the instructions for creating a Windows base image. I do not think I quite understand how the permissions should be set up. Before running the *cygwin-sshd-config.sh* script I had mapped the root user in the /etc/passwd file to the current Administrator account I was logged in as. I then logged into cygwin as root and ran the * cygwin-sshd-config.sh *script which took me through the process of creating the privileged user cyg_server. Ultimately I get the error 'The service did not start due to a logon failure'. Also the script seems to overwrite the root entry I placed in the passwd file. Any clarification as to the permissions would be greatly appreciated.
