I was trying to telnet from one switch to another. But instead of using the user created, I logged in as root. I use the password created for root. But it did not work. I know that the password is correct because when I was in that switch, I was able to access the shell using root and its password. So it looks like root is only used for accessing the shell and it is used locally. Correct? Thx

Yes correct. By design you can not use root for telnet, since the password would be unencrypted.

For SSH you can configure it to allow or not access using root.

For SSH the best idea is to generate key pair and plant public key part where you need to connect.

As already told this is per design, this is the JTAC KB article:

Above article says router; but it is applicable for junos per se.

Thank you.
