Default Credentials

The default credentials for the image are user pirate with password hypriot.

Connection via SSH to a fresh HypriotOS, I get connection reset by peer.

After all, Re-flashing of the SD cards is all that we’ve experienced as a solution for this error.

How can I change the hostname?

We use device-init to automatically change some settings on every boot.

Just edit the /boot/device-init.yaml file with an editor

sudo nano /boot/device-init.yaml

and change the line with hostname:

hostname: "black-pearl"

After a reboot the device boots up with the new hostname. See more details about the device-init.yaml file.
