For resetting via vKVM I only know how to do it when using grub as the bootloader.. although I am sure it's possible with lilo or others..You need vKVM in hdd mode.

At the grub boot menu simply press e to edit the boot options. For the kernel line just add the word "single" to the end. It will boot up and offer root shell as an option. Just set the password as you normally would.

Its seems its its related to image of ubuntu server 8.04 32bit

I tried the 8.10 veriosn and its working fine? very odd

Only times I ran in trouble is using cut & paste of the password, not noticing it added an extra space behind it, or when I was 1 number off with the IP address.

Nevertheless, you could try booting in your dedicated server with vKVM. After you reboot your machine, you'll get a vKVM username/password pair. Once accessed, you can start your dedicated machine and try to log in using the root/password combination given after the OS reinstall. If that does not work, then there's most likely a problem on OVH's side. However, if you do get in, it's on your side. Just a suggestion

I reformated a dedicated earlier, and was sent login details, when i tried to SSH into the server and login with those details, they kept getting rejected.

So i triedd reformating again, just incase it was a dodgy reinstall, but the same thing happened. So i raised a ticket and am having that looked into at the moment.

I decided while that was going through, id have a fiddle with my RPS to pass some time, only i had forgotten the login details for it hahahaha ( really should write those down when i change them )
So i figured id just reformat it as this was nothing important on it anyway, now im getting the same issue, the login details sent to me do not work, iv already raised a ticket about the dedicated server, but im not really sure if i should for the RPS as it may not really be needed if there is a system-wide issue.

Just wondering if anyone else has had similar issues today, or if there are issues at OVH's end? or should i just raise another ticket?

Cheers
