Installed 2019-09-26-raspbian-buster-full on a microsd using balenaEtcher-Portable-1.5.63
Used Win10 to create an empty ssh file in the boot drive/partition of the microsd
Could not connect to the pi with ssh. "Connection refused"
Verified the ssh file existed on the the microsd using 2 separate Win10 machines.
Still could not connect with ssh.
Connected kbd/mouse/monitor to the pi and it booted logged in to desktop.
Opened up the /boot from the pi, and the ssh file I created on Win10 did not appear.
Created the ssh file from the pi, rebooted, and then headless ssh worked.
Why would the ssh file created by the Win10 machine not appear when looking at the /boot from the pi?
It appears that the pi will remove the ssh file after successfully enabling ssh (?), but after booting with the ssh file created by Win10 (which didnt work), I looked at the microsd from a different Win10 machine and the ssh file was still present. The pi didnt see it?
I feel like I have done the headless ssh enable many times, so I dont know what I could be missing.
I did a 2019-09-26-raspbian-buster-lite just the other day using the same gear and it worked fine. Could it be a buster-full problem?
Thanks for any insights.
