RE: [ISSForum] Admin Password


you can boot the Proventia using some rescue CD.
I used this one:

Then just mount the filesystem with /etc directory.
According to the /etc/fstab:
/dev/sda5        /                       ext3    defaults        1 1
/dev/sda1        /boot                   ext3    defaults        1 2
none                    /dev/pts                devpts  gid=5,mode=620
0 0
none                    /proc                   proc    defaults
0 0
none                    /dev/shm                tmpfs   defaults
0 0
/dev/sda3       /rboot                  ext3    defaults        1 2
/dev/sda6       /cache                  ext3    defaults        1 2
/dev/sda7       /restore                ext3    defaults        1 2
/dev/sda8      /backup                 ext3    defaults        1 2
/dev/sda2        swap                    swap    defaults        0 0
/dev/cdrom              /mnt/cdrom              iso9660 noauto,owner,ro
0 0
/dev/fd0                /mnt/floppy             auto    noauto,owner
0 0

do for example: mount /dev/sda5 /mnt/mnt1

Using vi editor erase root's password from /mnt/mnt1/etc/passwd
or /mnt/mnt1/etc/shadow so it will look like:


Reboot the box. Login using empty password and then set root's and
Admin's password to whatever you want.
