managed to get Dell support help to reset the root password.

after clearing the log file, the root password can be reset without errors.

Hi,

Thanks for your question. Did you run the command that the error message says to run to configure the networking? Does the vswitch show it connected still? 

Let us know if you have any additional questions.

the thing now is that I cannot click on the Login at the bottom and i do not have the admin password to login to the Log Insight.

When i click on arrow keys and Enter key, no response.

Try this to see if you can get access to the cli. 
Take a snapshot for vmware vRealize log Insight VM. 
Enter the following in the Boot Options :  init=/bin/bash
Confirm by pressing Enter. The system will boot and you will see the command line interface.

If that doesn't work you may need to redeploy the appliance. https://dell.to/42ExmII

It isn’t in the options for the VM, start the VM and open the console to it so you can see the boot process and it should give you a grub menu to add the command.

i managed to go into the boot option to reset password but encountered another error.

seems like the old password has expired as i cannot do a reset using passwd.

" passwd : Authentication token manipulation error "

This isn’t for the same product but it may still help. https://dell.to/3Cq0Yyd

Create the missing /etc/pam.d/system-auth file

sh-3.2# vi /etc/pam.d/system-auth

 

sh-3.2# cat /etc/pam.d/system-auth
auth        required      pam_env.so
auth        sufficient    pam_unix.so nullok try_first_pass
auth        requisite     pam_succeed_if.so uid >= 500 quiet
auth        required      pam_deny.so

 

account     required      pam_unix.so
account     sufficient    pam_succeed_if.so uid < 500 quiet
account     required      pam_permit.so

 

password    requisite     pam_cracklib.so   retry=3   lcredit=-0   dcredit=-1   minlen=8   difok=3   ucredit=-0   ocredit=-0
password    sufficient    pam_unix.so md5 shadow nullok try_first_pass use_authtok
password    required      pam_deny.so

 

session     optional      pam_keyinit.so revoke
session     required      pam_limits.so
session     [success=1 default=ignore] pam_succeed_if.so service in crond quiet use_uid
session     required      pam_unix.so

 

sh-3.2# ll -h /etc/pam.d/system-auth
-rw-r--r-- 1 root root 797 Jun 29  2013 /etc/pam.d/system-auth

Now try to reset the root password and it will work fine.

sh-3.2# passwd root
Changing password for user root.
New UNIX password:
BAD PASSWORD: it is based on a dictionary word
Retype new UNIX password:
passwd: all authentication tokens updated successfully.
sh-3.2#

Probably not, it was for a different platform in the article, but I was hoping it would work here. You will probably need to call phone support.
