If the admin user password set during deployment is forgotten, the user can login to the Unified Access Gateway console using the root user credentials and reset the Admin UI password.

Prerequisites

You must have the password for logging in to the virtual machine as the root user or a user with root privileges. The user must be a part of the root group.

Procedure

  1. Log in to the operating system of the Unified Access Gateway console as the root user.
  2. Enter the following commands to reset the password of the administrator.

    adminpwd

    New password for user "admin": ********

    Retype new password: ********

    In this example, the password is at least 8 characters long, contains at least one uppercase and one lowercase letter, one digit, and one special character, which includes ! @ # $ % * ( ).

    The following message is displayed.

    adminpwd: password for "admin" updated successfully

  3. Enter the following commands to reset the password of an administrator with less privileges.

    adminpwd [-u <username>]

    New password for user "jdoe": ********

    Retype new password: ********

    In this example, the password is at least 8 characters long, contains at least one uppercase and one lowercase letter, one digit, and one special character, which includes ! @ # $ % * ( ).
