Specifying an Initial Root Password for Logging into a cSRX Container in a Linux Docker Environment

If you intend to log into the cSRX container using SSH, specify an initial root password when launching the cSRX. When a cSRX container is launched, remote access using SSH will be enforced with username and password.


After the cSRX container is started, change the password and, if desired, the authentication method for the root-level user.

To specify an initial root password for logging into the cSRX container:

root@csrx-ubuntu3:~/csrx# docker run -d --privileged --network=mgt_bridge -e CSRX_ROOT_PASSWORD=<password> --name=<csrx-container-name> <csrx-image-name>
