Univention Bugzilla – Bug 35375
d-i should not ask for first user (and root credentials?)
Last modified: 2014-11-26 06:54:35 CET
The d-i should not ask for information for the first user account. And if possible it should not ask for the root password (should be done in Univention System Setup).

It should be sufficient to exclude the user-setup package.
May be done through pre-seeding:
d-i passwd/make-user boolean false
This has been done through preseeding through build-cd-ucs4: r51925
Removing the udebs does not yet seem to work: r51926
r51966: The following udeb have been removed:
r52013: user-setup-udeb has been re-enabled to allow setting up the root password.
Normal user creation is still diables through pre-seeding.
I don't know if this matters but it is still possible to create a first user account during the d-i by leaving the root password empty. From the d-i:
"The root user should not have an empty password. If you leave this empty, the root account will be disabled and the system's initial user account will be given the power to become root using the sudo command."
The password must match the default password policy because it is used as password for Administrator.
r13485 | Bug #35375 d-i: Minimum root password
Require 8 character minimum
No longer falls back to creating a regular user with sudo permission.

Now it isn't possible to leave the root password empty, so no fallback to first user creation.
