DELL Management Plugin for vCenter

Jump to solution

I cannot remember the password to login to the appliance. Is there a way to reset?

I would like to uppgrade to version 1.5 from 1.0.

 

Thanks,

 

 

Peter.

You can login to the appliance using Linux single user mode and reset the password.  Here are the steps to follow:

1. Reboot the appliance

2. Type “e” when see the CentOS splash screen to get into the boot menu screen

3. Use the arrows to go Kernel line

4. Press e to edit this entry and add “rw init=/bin/bash”, hit “b” for boot

5. The console boots into single user mode and comes up with a prompt

6. Type /sbin/pam_tally2 –user admin –reset

7. Reboot the appliance
