Enable SSH Access
After upgrading to DSM 6.0 I could no longer SSH as root to my Synology NAS. This problem may occur again during a future upgrade. The fix should be similar if not identical. This assumes you have already enabled SSH access via the GUI.
- SSH as user with Administrator rights. (e.g. admin)
- Run the following: sudo synouser --setpw root <PASSWORD> (Note the password must be identical to your admin ID password. Or use the password for a newly created admin user, assuming you have disabled the default 'admin' ID.)
