Initial boot and setup
It is good idea to have keyboard and display connected to Pi to make the initial setup.
The default username and password are
First change the password for
root with command
You can check it works by logging out with
exit and logging in again with the given new password.
Here is Finland we have a different keyboard layout so it is good idea to run
run-setup to set keyboard layout, timezone etc.
Enable SSH access
I don’t really want Pi to be connected to keyboard and display all the time and I’m going to use Ansible to provision Pi eventually, so let’s create a user for Ansible. Also root-login via SSH is not enabled by default.
Give the password for ansible-user.
Devuan should be set up to run ssh by default, so now you should be able to connect to your Pi via SSH with ansible-user.
Root-access to Ansible
visudo as root-user (I like vi more than nano, so I ran
ansible ALL=(ALL:ALL) ALL
under following line
root ALL=(ALL:ALL) ALL
Just to make sure everything has been reloaded restart the Pi with
shutdown -r 0
Now your Pi is ready to be put in to dark closet for remote access :)
