I'm trying to configure autoyast to run via cobbler. For some reason the root password is not getting set. I've tried to use encrypted password and generating a profile from GUI autoyast and then copying the "users" section. Nothing seems to work.

This is what I have in the autoyast xml file.

<users config:type="list">
       <encrypted config:type="boolean">false</encrypted>

Thanks in advance.

Issue solved. The problem was with the confirmation screen. I've been testing the installation and left the confirmation screen on, so it's faster to check that all parameters are set. I ignored the "root password not set" message and everything is working as written in autoyast xml. Root password is set and a regular user is created.
