I have a boundary devices nitrogen 6x board and am trying to get an SSH connection to function.  After logging into the device using the console I type:



it returns;

root@freescale ~$ passwd

Changing password for root

New password:

Bad password: too weak

Retype password:

Password for root changed by root


then when I try and login using ssh, after giving the correct password it returns:

login as: root

root@'s password:

Last login: Thu Jan  1 00:00:39 1970 from



WARNING: Your password has expired.

You must change your password now and login again!

passwd: No such file or directory


My ethernet is using DHCP to get it IP address.


Any help would be appreciated on how to properly set a root password for linux.
