This was running fine. I have a Fedora 36 workstation that runs kvm. I connect to this workstation via root and this was working fine.

I had a power failure and now when I want to connect via ssh (i.e. ssh root@<IP address> I get a 'Permission denied, please try again error'. Not sure this is coincidence...

I know the root password is correct as I can logon using root via the server console.

I can also successfully connect to the F36 workstation via ssh using another account so 'sshd' must be running.

What could be the issue here? Note: I need this root access as I'm using kvm under the root account (this is all on a local network so I'm not concerned that I'm not using best practice here
 


Fedora disables this by default now in 36 and newer.

Edit your /etc/ssh/sshd_config file.
Find the Line that starts with #PermitRootLogin
Uncomment it and change it to.
PermitRootLogin yes (delete the rest of the line)
Then you need to enable and start sshd

systemctl enable sshd
systemctl start sshd
