I am using a MyCloud Mirror Rev. 2, and since Firmware Version 2.31.193, a login via SSH is not possible anymore. Also, version 2.31.195 (the latest) is defective. Only a downgrade to version 2.31.183 did make SSH working again.
I confirm this issue. Using a WD MyCloud Gen 2, access through SSH is denied. I made absolutely sure that the IP address matches and even updating the password through the web interface (which is accessible) does not grant access.
After a brief search through these forums, the following solution helped me:
It appears that instead of using ‘root’, using ‘sshd’ as username works.
It appears that the user has been changed indeed also the available commands that are allowed are restricted…
I only used it to run nzbget , but found a way to install it using the webinterface so i dont need it anymore…
I am somewhat bothered that there was no communication regarding these changes to my device !!
