Changing the default username and password

I am looking to change the default password for the admin account for the migration tool.  Is this possible?

Yes, you can.

You will have to navigate to Settings -> Users and edit the "admin" user to set up the new password.

Re: Changing the default username and password

I tested this, and this only changes the Web UI password.  I am trying ot find a way to change the CLI password too. 

 

The reason why i want to change this is because the cedentials for this tool are published on the Internet, and the credentitials are provided in the CLI at the login prompt.

If you want to modify the admin OS settings, first you need to enter into single mode while on the Grub menu.

Later, you can use the OS command "passwd".

 

Log in into your account and simply type

passwd

 

It will require you to enter the new credentials.

 

Check if the following link helps: https://wiki.centos.org/TipsAndTricks/ResetRootPassword

 

NOTE: "root" password is not provided. The credentials are provided for the "admin" user. I think you only want to log in as admin and change the password with the passwd command. Much more simple than entering into single mode, and a plain OS password change command.
