The root user is not active by default in Container Linux, so root login is not available. Instead, log in as the core user.

Log in as core user SSH

  1. From your local terminal, enter:

    1
    ssh core@<your_linode's_IP>
    
  2. At the password: prompt, enter the core user’s password you assigned when first having deployed Container Linux.

Log in to CoreOS Through the Console (Lish or Glish)

Log in as core user Lish

  1. At the login: prompt, enter core.

  2. At the password: prompt, enter the core user’s password you assigned when first having deployed Container Linux.
