Hi, I have been using Bluefield for a while, but at some point, I cannot access it anymore through
I got a permission denied error. I checked all my other interfaces and IP addresses and routing tables; there is no chance that I accidentally try to connect to some other machine on the LAN - I see the explicit entry in the output of route -n for interface tmfifo_net0.
I decided to reinstall ubuntu on the SmartNIC by explicitly setting a new password to be used. I followed this documentation: https://docs.mellanox.com/display/BlueFieldSWv36011699/Upgrading+NVIDIA+BlueField+DPU+Software#heading-SoftwarePrerequisites, more precisely the section Image installation.
Still, I cannot log in; I have the same permission denied error.
I also tried reinstalling the OS without the --config parameter as the documentation said; if it is missed, the system will ask me to change the password after the first login.
I ended up in the same situation.
As a last resort, I tried communicating to the Bluefield via the rshim0 console.
Credential is not working either: Login incorrect.
Can someone help me with this?
