If you mean using ssh, PermitRootLogin defaults to No.
Either set it to Yes to enable root login with plain text passwords or
"without-password" to enable login using public keys only.

It's not just root, my regular user account is "gone" too (and I tried to be very careful with etcupdate :-/). I'll just boot -s when I get to the console, but I'd like to find out what went wrong so I don't repeat the mistake when I do another remote build/install.
