I’m having trouble using the
passwordFile option. I have a test user named “asdf” with password “pass”. Using
mkpasswd -m sha-512 pass I get something like
$6$lJe..., whatever let’s call it
<hashed>. Now when I do
users.users.asdf.hashedPassword = "<hashed>";
everything works fine, but when I try to use
# /etc/passwordFile asdf:<hashed> # /etc/nixos/configuration.nix users.users.asdf.passwordFile = "/etc/passwordFile";
I can’t login. I just get a “Login incorrect” error.
Oddly enough I’m also no longer to login as
root even though
root's password was set by
nixos-install and I don’t have any
users.users.root configuration in
Does anyone have any ideas what could be going on here?
