Default Password Setting In Cobbler


Hello guys


I cant understand how to sort out from this problem, while check the cobbler boot server, from the command cobbler check

follwing error comes out , i dont understand how to fix it

1 : The default password used by the sample templates for newly installed machines (default_password_crypted in /etc/cobbler/settings) is still set to 'cobbler' and should be changed, try: "openssl passwd -1 -salt 'random-phrase-here' 'your-password-here'" to generate new one

Restart cobblerd and then run 'cobbler sync' to apply changes.


i know u guys definetely help me to sort out of this problem

Thanks In Advance
Regards

Again, as you've been asked in several of your other posts, SPELL OUT YOUR WORDS and write clearly. Capital letters, etc....read the LQ rules.

And is this a trick question??? Did you bother to read the error message??

See the part where it tells you what the problem is (HINT: the default password hasn't been changed???). Then if you read further, you might even see the part where it tells you how to fix it (another hint: it gives you the openssl command.) Try actually running that command as it tells you, then restart the daemon..again, as it tells you.
