I recently migrated my raspberry pi openmediavault server device to a new case (geekworm's naspi gemini). I installed a script by geekworm to run a pwm fan on the pi, then rebooted. After this, the device is incredibly slow to connect to the network, thus making remote access difficult to establish. So, I connected a monitor to the device (which I do not normally do since I usually access it remotely), I am never given the option to enter commands, instead, this is what I see: enter image description here

What does this authentication failure mean? And how can I gain the ability to enter commands this way? And could this be related to the install of the fan script?

I can provide more details as needed. Thank you!

  • Apologies for the bad image, I have updated it. How would you suggest I cut and paste the text into the question though? This text only appears when I connect a monitor to the device, and I cannot use a browser as this is the lite os. I suppose I could manually type the relevant text if you would prefer that…

  • What OS? How did you install OMV - on top of Raspberry Pi OS or OMV image? AFAIK OMV does not have user pi. What does the script DO? Changing case should not change anything.

  • It was Raspbian Bullseye Lite, with OMV installed on top of it. I agree that the case shouldn’t change anything, which is why I think it may be related to the fan script somehow. The script I mentioned controls the pwm fan on the case. I have found this issue on the repo of someone seeming to have a similar issue
