    Root user password resets after reboot


    Hi

    I have a seagate central nas. The root user has no password, so I set one and it works. But when I reboot the system it dissappears, no password needed to log into root user account. Do I have to save settings or something?

    It's possible that the root file system is being mounted read only. Try remounting as rw. mount -o remount,rw /

    Thank you for the tip but it did not help... Any other suggestion? I think the system kinda resets after each reboot or something..
