I want to know how to change a password to an user account. Can someone give me the syntax on how to do this? I was using usermod but it's not working (usermod -p 123456 user1). Is there other way beside usermod? I am using RHEL5.
I have configured httpd web server to allow each of the system users to have their own web page (using UserDir directive).At the same time I have configured ftp server to allow the users to upload their html files to the web server.With above set up my users need not have any knowledge of linux; they can work from any windows PC on the network.There is no problem in the above.However, now I need to allow my users to change their passwords. The point here to note is that the users should be able to do this even from windows PC on the network. One of the way is to configure a telnet server (or sshd). But I find that the windows PC does not have telnet client.The other idea is that I should put a php script on the server which would take user name and password from the web page and then change the password. I don't know how can the system account password be changed through script - I will have to check this out.
I setup openldap and samba on 9.10. The ubuntu desktop client gets authenticated successfully with the server. But when I do a passwd on the client, only the ldap passwd is getting changed but not in the samba and the unix user account.
passdb backend = ldapsam:ldap://192.168.3.100 ldap suffix = dc=example,dc=local ldap user suffix = ou=People ldap group suffix = ou=Groups
But only the ldap password is getting changed and not in the samba and unix user account.
I remember my password very well and have no need of password recovery. Everywhere I look it's how to recover and I don't want that. The kind where you boot into root recovery console to change the password.
I have lost my password for my root and for my user account.
Code: Select alluser@debian:~$ su Password: su: Authentication failure user@debian:~$ su Password: su: Authentication failure user@debian:~$ su
I have just installed a gust debian 8 on debian 8 host in virtualbox, and when i wonted too login as su/root on the host there where no login possible, is there a way to regain the root password for the host?
I suppose that my main Linux user account password serves as my SSH password as well. Is there a way I can modify this? As it turns out, I'd like to have a REALLY secure SSH password for obvious reasons, but a less secure local password, as it makes typing in passwords a heck of a lot easier on a machine. Is there a way I can change my account password in SSH without changing my Linux user password?
I want to add 50 new users, not on the server yet I want to add them all to group Accounting - with 1 option, not user by user I want to setup a default password for them all, and have it say something like 'You must now change password or no access will be permitted' Any other options I also want to do once, not for each user?
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.
Yesterday Ubuntu One stopped syncing properly: all files and folders were listed on the web site grayed out and tagged with "uploading", while there was "0 bytes Used". I could still upload files manually to the website fairly quickly, so it probably wasn't purely server overload. Anyway, a number of things happened after that:uninstalled the Ubuntu One client packages and reinstalled them in Account settings on the website, I removed my computer, hoping to make a fresh start the Ubuntu online account login system for some reason forced me to change my password (presumably it wasn't strong enough)
After all that, I can still login to the website (with the new password), but the computer can't login. When I type u1sdtool -s in terminal, the result is
When I open Ubuntu One Preferences from the Me menu, it completely freezes at the Account tab; I can't click anything or even close it (have to kill it in terminal).
I suppose the login failure has to do with the old password whcih was saved in the keyring. The removed computer from the account probably complicates the issue.

I want to do setting in RHEL5 such that user should able to change his password only once in a day.I have changed the fourth field (i.e. minimum number of days to change) in in "/etc/shadow" file for "root" to "1". But its not working. I am able to change the password of "root" using "passwd" command.Any one can help me out on this issue
One of my users has a bit of a problem. I forced password change for this user, and the user thought that it was simply asking for the password again. I had to use my godlike powers to change the users password again. And here comes trouble.The user cannot log in. The system accept the password and we can see the background screen and some messages, but that is all.Quote:Could not update ICEauthoroty file /home/user/.ICEauthorotyQuote: There are problems with configurationsserver.(/usr/lib/libgconf2-4/gconf-sanity-check-2 exit with status 256)Quote:Nautilus couldn't create following folders necessary: /home/user/Desktop, /home/user/.nautilus.Please create these folders before you run Nautilus, or set permission so Nautilus can create them
