NCS Prime Infra-appliance1.3 - root password not working

Answered Question
Sep 24th, 2013
User Badges:

Hello!

I´m trying to get root access to ADE-OS by issuing the "root" command from CLI. But it says I´ve got the wrong password: "Permission denied (publickey,gssapi-with-mic,password)"


But as I remember its should be the password to the root account and it works using the same password to log into the NCS Prime web-gui as root.


Just to be clear:

Web-gui-access: root account works

CLI-access to ADE-OS w/ root account from CLI: password wrong ie. permisson denied


Any ideas?

root_disable

root_enable

root

commands you can execute from the CLI


If you don't know the root enable password, simply enter root_disable then root_enable, set yourself a new root password then enter root and boom, you're in.


There are 2 seperate root accounts::

1 to access the webui

1 to access the cli
