@minhyuk the root account is locked. I wouldn't recommend enabling it in a desktop environment. @rattydave added a very useful tip about using sudo in his comment, though. I want to make user management better but simply don't have the time right now
To add your own users. Use this...
Change %USERNAME to the username you want.
Change %PASSWORD to the password you want.
docker exec -it xrdp-box bash -c "useradd -ms /bin/bash %USERNAME"
docker exec -it xrdp-box bash -c "echo %USERNAME:%PASSWORD|chpasswd "
#If you want Sudo Access
docker exec -it xrdp-box bash -c "usermod -aG sudo %USERNAME"
can you provide root password?
