resetting linux password?

Recommended Posts

Just plain idiocy here--

 

Is it possible to reset the client access password on a linux 7.0.109 client without knowing the current password?

 

thanks,

 

cal

hi c.a.,

 

in a word, yes. go to your linux box or get into it remotely.

in a shell, do '/etc/init.d/rcl stop'.

once the client is stopped, cd to /var/log and remove the retroclient.state file. run '/usr/local/dantz/client/retroclient -setpass' and enter your password.

'/etc/init.d/rcl start' --don't forget to restart the client.

 

you'll also have to forget & readd the client in the server.
