I have imx6ul dev board 

I tried to add a password for yocto login. 
steps I did:
create an MD5 password
Copied the generated hash output string and replace the MD5_ROOT_PASSWD with it.
in the local.conf file, removed debug-tweaks extra_image_features
rebuild the images.

after installed the images, at prompt
  login:
type root, password: is not prompted

Then I added
useradd - p 'password hash string' admin
after rebuild and install the images, at prompt
login: admin
Password:

it shows the password, but returns login incorrect

What did I miss?

Thank you,

David
