My application is installed on root of RH enterprise 5 and is run via user on the same machine. This need ssh without password from the user.
i do the following : 1. run ssh-keygen in .ssh directory of the user. 2. copy the id_rsa.pub as the authorized-keys in the root's .ssh directory 3 chmod 600 to the authorized_keys 4.restart the machine 5. login from the user and ssh SER ( SER is the entry in the /etc/hosts with the ip address of the machine) 6 It still prompt for the password

Haven't used my laptop with Ubuntu 9.04 in months, completely forgotten my username and password. I've read up other peoples advice on this but it hasn't helped, tried following this, [URL] but once i get to 'Drop to root shell prompt' i get 'Give root password for maintenance (or type Control-D to continue): I don't recall ever having a 'root password'
I am new to Linux, I have recently bought a mini laptop for my daughter and it has linux installed. After initial looking through the linux software, (which I love) she has somehow managed to put in a user name and password, but has no idea what it is.How do I login without this information.
I'm using Ubuntu 10.04LTS. I'm trying to configure my chat accounts. But after entering username and password, it is asking "Enter password to unlock your login keyring". I have entered my login password. But it is saying that "The password you use to log in to your computer no longer matches that of your login keyring."
I'm working on sharing a user's home folder using the username and password of the user's lLnux account. I noticed that home folder sharing is quite easy as I just need to change the smb.conf file to enable it. However I can't seem to login anyway. It seems that Samba keeps its own records of username and passwords. Is there a way that I can map/sync the Linux users' usernames and passwords automatically to Samba? The end result should be that whenever I add a new user or a user changes his/her Linux login password,Samba automatically changes its password as well.
We are in the process of testing SLES 10 SP1 installation, onto a new system.
Initially the installation got failed at the start giving following error :
"Could not find the SUSE Linux Enterprise Server 10 Installation CD. Activating Manual setup program."
What is interesting to notice is , if we use SLES 10 SP2 to boot the system upto the Installation menu and then replace the CD with SLES 10 SP1 media, the installation proceeds as normal without any error.
Not sure that could be the problematic thing over here. Does it mean with SP1 , no cdrom/cd or hard disk gets detected ?
I have a problem regarding the ubuntu enterprise cloud. I have installed CC,CLC,SC,NC and a client and logged into thje user interface using my browser for the first time with bith username and passwd as admin and downloaded the credentials.But now as I try to login with the same username and passwd, it says that its an invalid login. I understand we have to change the password on the first login but i don't remember doing the same.
I tried recover password option and gave the user name as admin and email address as my gmail id. It says that I have to follow the instructions sent to the mail, but there is no mail sent I have done it like 5 or 6 times with different mail ids
I recently installed vsftpd on my server. I noticed that users on the machine can login into vsftpd with their username and password on the machine and go to their root dir "/home/username".Now, I want to give some people a vsftpd username and password so they can upload and download files and folders to their folder, but this folder has to be in the "/var/www/(username)" folder. I don't want them to be able to go to any other folder than their own folder like "/var", "/etc" or "/home" etc. Also I don't want them to be able to login on the machine as a user, through putty for example. They should only be allowed to acces their folder with vsftpd, nothing else.
I installed lucid lynx about a month ago. with I installed filezilla and I have wordpress running on localhost.
When I do an automatic on wordpress it asks for ftp credentials. I don't my ftp credentials. I was not aware that I had ftp username and password. I am not sure if that means I installed the ftp server without knowing. my root password does not work on this.
I tried searching through wordpress forums but most of them show me how to set the ftp username and password in wp-config file so that it doesn't ask for it every time.
How can I find out the ftp username and password on my computer.
The login cycles- I already have a problem with mounting something connected with USB (long term minor annoyance, but everything works), but suddenly I cannot log in. When I put my username and password in, the screen flashes black for about half a second, then the login screen re-appears. If I put the wrong password in, I get an authentication error message (as expected) without turning black and then cycling again.
I have no problems going into terminal mode and logging in. I've tried all sorts of suggestions related to this problem- reinstalling ubuntu-desktop, apt-get clean, sudo startx, and the last indicates that x-windows is already running. I've found a couple more things to try, but I'm not too sure how well they'll work. It seems to be connected with x-windows, but I don't know what is causing it. Last night I had a big problem that required reinstalling nautilus (couldn't set up a connection to a remote server), and that problem was fixed- but this developed when I booted this morning.
at work place I have an HP ProLiant DL580 with RedHat Enterprise Server 5.4 x64. Today I cloned this machine using clonezilla. What I would like to do is restore the image to VMWare machine for personal purpose (I cannot perform tests on production machine). But after restoring on VMWare I got "Kernel Panic". That's normal due to different hardware.
Now, is there a way to remove the Kernel Panic and correctly boot the machine? I ask our tech department for the RedHat CD1 to enter the "linux rescue" enviromnent, then try to re-read the hardware list with
My daughter from New Zealand gave me her Acer Aspire 4315 Laptop/Notebook Linux System in December 2009 so that I could use it in bed on days that I was unable to get out to use my main computer as I am a very ill man. I was able to log into the unit as she just said to me to use her name and password to. I have been able to use the unit on the internet at home and my other daughters home through a home wireless system. I clicked on the Upgrade Icon which it did, I think it went from a 7. something to 8.something All the way through the set up it asked me questions and I just clicked yes thinking that was what I had to do. My problem now is, that when I turn the unit on it asks me for a username and password. I put the details my daughter gave me but it tells me invalid user and password. All I do know is that a friend of my daughter installed the Ubuntu Program onto the Laptop/Notebook. Can anyone tell me how or what I have to do now to be able to use the unit again as I am getting very frustrated with the whole thing. I am not used to using Ubuntu and am totally lost with it as I have always been a Microsoft user.
I have currently Windows 7 running and installed on partition C.I have partition D empty , and I would like to install Red Hat on it without affecting Windows seven ( i.e., dual boot Windows 7 & Red Hat6 ).
I just downloaded Debian's live CD .iso file. I put it on a USB stick and booted from it. It loads everything then presents me a login screen. I have no idea what the login and password is I've looked all over google and people said it was user: live pass: live or something like that. I've tried a lot of different combinations with no luck. So does anyone know the real username and password for this?
i got myself in a really dumb position. i upgraded from 11.0 to 11.2 this morning. after restarting it loads up everything and then shows me a login/password prompt. i have forgotten what my login is, i know my password.
I'm using a program on a group of servers which contact each other using SSH. I've got the authentication keys setup with no password but when one box tries to connect to another it wants the password for the user it's trying to communicate with. So the main problem is there is a lot of communicating within this program so it's important to allow each box communicate with each other without the use of a password. I'm using OpenSSH 4.3 with OpenSSL 0.9.8 on Red Hat Enterprise Linux Server 5.3 (Tikanga). I'm also using SSH on Ubuntu(Intrepid) to connect to these servers at the mo as i don't have direct access to the boxes.
