      Did you activate root login via ssh? Its turned of by default. Then root / openmediavault shoud work.

      I've not read through all that, but I'm not sure how much that's going to help with ARM. SSH root access should be enabled by default on all the SBC images and even the normal 64bit ISO's. On the 64bit ISO's, the root password is set during install. The ARM's, it's preset in the image.

      OP... A lot depends on how you installed OMV. If you used the official OMV images... It says right on the page the password for root is openmediavault (scroll to the bottom)…ngle%20Board%20Computers/

      If you installed OMV on top of armbian, then the default root password was set by armbian.

      How to login?
      Login as root on console (HDMI / serial) or via SSH and use password 1234. You will be prompted to change this password at first login. You will then be asked to create a normal user account that is sudo enabled (beware of default QWERTY keyboard settings at this stage). Please use this tool, to find your board IP address.

      So if you've not set the root password for OMV, and openmediavault isn't working to log you in as root, I would try 1234 and see what happens.
      Air Conditioners are a lot like PC's... They work great until you open Windows.

      Nope, this would mean imitating Cisco and shipping with an evil backdoor by default. The root password is well known while majority of OMV users is not aware of an enabled SSH account or the existence of SSH in general. If the SSH account would be active by default every attacker in reach of those OMV installations could easily login and do whatever he wants.

      Situation on x86 where due to totally different installation procedure the user already had to adjust the root password is different.
