just installed a new ubuntu 16.04 vm on Azure.
in networking i open ports for http, https, ftp, and Virtualmin (10000)
During the Azure part of the setup i configured the vm for ssh access to work via public and private keys and am able to access the vm via putty. I note that i had the option in Azure to use a password to access the vm (i am assuming via active directory or something like).
when i installed virtulamin using the auto installer, i was unable to login via https://mydomain:10000 because it rejected my username and password.
I had to use putty to go in the Ubuntu O/S and manually enable the root user so i could then login to virtualmin.
(entered new password twice)
When i got into webmin users i noticed that the only account in there was the new root account i had just created/enabled in putty.
what i dont understand, should setting the Azure VM to use ssh access make any difference to virtualmin admin account? (putty still requires a username and password to get into the server anyway)
Why didnt virtualmin have a usable account with which to login with?
