Can I log in a shell as admin?

And hi once more,

I was wondering, can I somehow login as an admin and get a shell? I don’t feel comfortable to be locked out and have this as a “black box”.


You can use ssh to connect as sosadmin with the password used to login to the web interface. Hence why you should pick a proper password during the easy setup assistant (ESA).

I hope that answers your question :slight_smile:


Hi Till,

great, thanks! :slight_smile: I had tried “admin” and “root”, but not “sosadmin”.


btw. there are cli commands for everything you can do in the WebUI and even more… When they need input, it’s normally json, as this is also the API to the WebUI, but it could help in understanding things.

And: feel free to update Documentation etc. in gitlab :slight_smile:
