I am trying to enable root ssh login for a Solaris 10 VM (10.0.2.15) on a private netwrork. I have set PermitRootLogin to 'yes' in /etc/ssh/sshd_config as well as commenting out "CONSOLE" in /etc/default/login. I restarted the SSH service and then also reboot the VM because just restarting sshd did not seem to work.
From a Solaris 11 VM, when I try to login with the creds that work on the Console of the Solaris 10 VM, the login does not appear to work.
root@solaris11: ssh email@example.com password: password: password: Permission denied (gssapi-keyex,gssapi-with-mic,publickey,keyboard-interactive).
I have confirmed that the two hosts can see each other via ICMP "ping" exchanges and netcat:
root@solaris11: netcat -nvv 10.0.2.15 22 Connection to 10.0.2.15 22 port [tcp/*] succeeded! SSH-2.0-Sun_SSH_2.2
What else I am missing to enable remote root login to this VM via ssh?
