So I performed upgrades to Ubuntu on the original MineMeld OVA VM and can no longer login with the default username and password. This is NOT the UI password, but rather to log into the OS itself.
What can I do to recover this account? Is there a hidden default root account?
Solved! Go to Solution.
usually the update should not cange the username:password. But maybe the locals,keymap other was changed. Did you tred to login directly on the console or did you tried to login via ssh?
You know in the default password for user ubuntu is a "z" - maybe you should try "y" instead?
No other ideas here ...
I have the same thing!
I can not login via SSH with the ubuntu/rsplizardspock credentials (i tried converting the password to azrty: rspliwqrspock but also this did not work)
I can login to the GUI just fine
Ok I got back in and the password was defiantly "reset" in a sense after an OS update.
To find the temporary password for your OVA within VMware vSphere go to MineMeld's 'edit settings', 'vApp Options' tab, expand 'Application properties', scroll down to "Default User's password" and you will see the temporary password.
Once logged in I was prompted to change it.
I have not yet updated the OS. Is there any specific process to follow or will it be standard ubuntu upgrade. Just want to make sure that it does not break Minemeld.
