General :: Reset Password As Key-authenticated User?

May 28, 2010

I have shared keys setup on my domain, so I never type my password to login anymore.

I've forgotten my password now. This is a problem because only my user can sudo. Password authentication for root has been disabled, so without my password, I cannot do maintenance on my web server.

Is there a way to reset my password as my [now only] key-authenticated user?

Specifically, can this be done on CentOS 4?

I have installed Knoppix 6.2/6.4, on the whole hard drive, when I want to change, e.g. my location from America to UK. I am being asked for a user password. On install there were no menus to put these passwords, unlike Ubuntu, which I am using at the moment, in and location etc. Once installed there is the Knoppix menu to add a root password, no problem, but when I put the root password in, on user password ,it wont accept this.

General :: SuSE 9.3 FTP User - Password - Connecting ?

Nov 12, 2010

I've been trying to figure out how to set up vsftpd on a test machine to emulate the ftp setup on our current ftp server. I was able to track down part of what I needed with the gracious help of poster AlucardZero on this forum, who pointed out that the vsftpd process likely being run via xinetd.

I've managed (or so I thought) to set everything up correctly - but I cannot connect to my test box as the user the ftp client program we're using expects. I can see in the vsftpd log that I'm making contact, but the client program is automatically failing, and attempts to get in from the Windows command line (ftp <ip>) request user and password, then fail out with '530 Login incorrect'.

Everything I've seen online so far indicates that the ftp login for a local user (with vsftpd configuration settings including anonymous_enable=NO and local_enable=YES) should be the same as the 'normal' login for that user, and that the passwords should be the same as well. This is the case on the current FTP server, where a Windows command line login uses the same password as attempting to su into the user in question. On my test machine, I can su into the user in question with the password as well. I simply cannot seem to connect with this user via ftp.

Below are the things I've found so far during my search on the two servers:


I'm obviously missing something simple, because I've read many posts on this site and others concerning successful setups - I simply haven't managed one on my own. Most of these eventually boiled back down to this howto page, and I've tried to follow the 'add and change user' instructions shown there to no avail.

General :: Password Policy Affecting Root User ?

Aug 3, 2011

I am using pam module to set password policy in my SuSE linux machine. This is my /etc/pam.d/common-password file:

Now if root user tries to change the password of a normal user, giving the same password, it is throwing an error saying "Password has been already used. Choose another".

> passwd user1
> password1 (set successfully)
> passwd user1
> password1 (Password has been already used. Choose another)

This should not happen with the root user.

Red Hat :: Cannot Change Root Password (let Alone Standard User's Password)?

Jan 6, 2009

At the RHEL prompt, I entered the standard user's username/password combo. Linux displays a message box stating:"Your account has expired; please contact your system administrator."Next, I entered "root" in the username field and entered the root password (which expired also--keep in mind that passwords are set to expire after x days). Linux displays a message box stating:"You are required to change your password immediately (password aged)."When prompted to "Enter current UNIX password", I entered the new password (was that the right thing to do?); Linux displays a message box stating:"The change of the authentication token failed. Please try again later or contact the system administrator."I rebooted the system and got into command line mode; somehow I logged in as "root" (don't know exactly how, but needed to change the password there). At the "#" prompt, I type "passwd root"; Linux displays the message "Changing password for user root", followed by the message "passwd: Authentication information cannot be recovered.

General :: Display Password Policy Information For A User - Ubuntu?

Jun 9, 2010

Ubuntu Documentation > Ubuntu 9.04 > Ubuntu Server Guide > Security > User Management states that there is a default minimum password length for Ubuntu:

Say the password is to be modified by the user using passwd. Is there a command for displaying the current password policies for a user (such as the chage command displays the password expiration information for a specific user)?

This is rather than examining various places that control the policy and interpreting them since the process could contain errors. A command that reports the composed policy would be used to check the policy setting steps.
