I’m trying to install SBFspot on a RaspberryPi Zero W and all of it is going well, instructions are clear and then it aborts last minute because the password isn’t right. Now I went into the configuration file and adjusted the password to my own, saved, double-checked the savefile and ran the install again. It again complained about the password.
When I first entered my SMA inverter I had to set a strong user password so I picked letters, numbers and special characters. One topic I could find hinted that it worked just fine logging in as long as there were no special characters involved in the password. Unfortunately, it’s not possible to reset the user password on a SunnyBoy without requesting a PUK code (25 euro!) and filling in a lengthy form. So I hope someone here knows how to help.
