I remember years ago that with Fedora Core for the release between 12 and 14 the root account was removed due security reasons, same experience so far with Fedora Workstation and Server36, but just few minutes ago, I tried to install Fedora Server37 through VirtualBox and I have the following experience:
I am not sure if it is a bug, but it seems that now is mandatory select the Enable root account radio button. If is not selected then is not possible enable the Begin Installation button, see first Figure.
Why Fedora Server 37 now asks for a root user? or is it a bug?
Yes, I expected this behavior as I experienced with the release 36. Same as Ubuntu too.
Therefore for the first non-root user created through the installation process it has the sudo rigths/privileges. And well, if is executed the sudo -i command using the password of the first non-root user is possible change to “root” in peace.
If it is about the Root Account, could you expand the idea? I don’t understand your information.
For remote connections, normally I use the first non-root user with SSH. I want have clear the complete picture about when would be mandatory use this new feature.
