Can't change root Passwd VPS debian 9


#1

Hello,
Hope I will find answers here.
I ordered a new VPS today running on Debian 9. Received my debian login and passwd by email. I login as debian user then type “sudo su” to become root user. I type “sudo passwd” to change root password and it say successfully change. I updated “apt-get update” and reboot the VPS. But the root passwd isn’t working and I get “Acces denied” when I want to connect with root user.
Do you know if something has change with OVH if I want to change my Root passwd?
Thanks for your help
