Description of issue/question

SSH login is not working, easily fixed with chmod / 755, / was at 775.

Steps to reproduce issue

It is a fresh install of OMV 5.05 but i have created some users and enabled SMB, maybe one of these actions caused the issue...
(Include debug logs if possible and relevant.)

I'm a little bit confused, you mean root / has incorrect permissions?

I was also a bit confused, but 'stat /' gave me 775... i changed the permissiosn to 755 and SSH works. As i said. I am very sure that i have not changed accidentially the permissions of /..., it happens after i have created my user and configured SSH via the Web GUI. Maybe i can reproduce the issue, i will try.
