Hello - I just installed a new instance of 11.10 server on VMWare ESXi and it will not accept the password I had set for the initial user account. This has happened twice now. The password IS correct, as is the username. I cannot use the root account as it is not yet enabled. In these attempts, I am trying to log in for the first time.

Why can't Ubuntu use a password that was just set five minutes earlier?
Any way to fix this without reinstalling?

The explicit error message is "Login incorrect".

Thanks In Advance
