[WARN] Home Assistant CLI is not running! Jump into emergency console…

I’m running a fresh install (VirtualBox on Windows 10 laptop) and seeing this issue after I login using root.

I have searched online extensively and all i’ve seen are such problem posts but no solutions in any of them. can someone please help?

Usually it just means that you tried to log in before the rest of the containers are up and running.

i see. how do i get past it? once the VM is booted up, should i wait a while before logging in using “root” so containers are given ample time to start up?

What are you trying to do in the console? Most people have no need to log in there, and simply proceed to the web interface.
