Introduction to Linux - A Hands on Guide
This guide was created as an overview of the Linux Operating System, geared toward new users as an exploration tour and getting started guide, with exercises at the end of each chapter.
For more advanced trainees it can be a desktop reference, and a collection of the base knowledge needed to proceed with system and network administration. This book contains many real life examples derived from the author's experience as a Linux system and network administrator, trainer and consultant. They hope these examples will help you to get a better understanding of the Linux system and that you feel encouraged to try out things on your own.

Sleeping until rethink starts
rethinkdb: vFense: Starting instance. (logging to `/var/lib/rethinkdb/vFense/data/log_file')"
but if you're putting the password for a user capable of loading kernel patches in a plain text file on your machine... why are you worried about security patches? You've got a root like password in plain text?
I have successfully installed vFense server.I am able to access UI from one of my windows machine.
But now I am not able to login to the vFense server.I am providing the same user name and password
that I used at the time of vFense server initialization.
If I understand what your saying is you have a Linux server and a windows client...
Assuming that vFense is is properly configured and running on the Linux server the windows client still must remotely access the machine via ssh most likely. That means it initiate a password authentication sequence with the Linux server. Does the username and psswd exist on the Linux server?
cat /etc/passwd | grep -i <the user name you're using on the windows box>
reset the password on the server to match the one your using from your windows machine. It doesn't matter how certain you are you did it right the first time, at this point we're eliminating possible sources for the error, let's start with the most obvious and work our way down.
if you have a windows ssh client installed, use it to access the server, don't involve the vFense software yet, we're just trying to verify that you can access via ssh from the windows machine, we need to determine for certain which side of client/Server is screwing this up.
If you can access:
Go through the ini and/or config files on the windows installation of vFence and removed any reference to the now defunct password, I'd suggest you leave it blank but reference the documentation.
Conversely there is probably a way to make changes directly into the GUI but I have never heard of vFense prior to beginning this conversation so... take a look and let me know.
How did you solve the password problem from above? Did you map the user "toppatch" to an existing account?
