    Hi,

    After installing from OVH panel Almalinux 8 i got a normal user named almalinux and not the root as we got with Centos 7.

    What's the proper way to handle it for Cenntminmod?

    Thanks in advance!

    Enable root user and use that to install CMM?

    For OVH it installs a default sudo user almalinux for Almalinux or rockylinux for Rocky Linux so all you have to do is login as sudo user and switch to root user via sudo su -. I use SecureCRT so I configure it to default SSH session for OVH AlmaLinux or RockyLinux to login as sudo user and auto switch to root user. So I don't have to do anything and just login as usual.

    SecureCRT SSH client allows me to do all sorts of this at initial SSH login if I want :D SecureCRT is :cool:

    Yes this setup defeats the intended purpose of sudo users though :whistle::oops:
