Change root MSE password and password requirment

Hi All, new to the MSE world during the install of my new MSE virtual 7.0 it asks to change the root password...however the password requirement would not let me change the password and thus fell back to the default. How can I change the root password and change the password requirement.

My intial password was 15 characters long, I had 2 upper case letters, 5 lower case letters, 5 numbers, and 3 other characters

Not sure how much more I need to have the root password secure but, it was....

Any suggestions or do I just need to make the root password double what I as making it.

Thanks,

Dan

Change root MSE password and password requirment

Hey,

today I faced the same problem, a fresh MSE 7.5 installation with a really annoying setup script, not allowing me to configure a root password. Did you get an answer or in the meanwhile have a solution ?

Thank you

Regards

Change root MSE password and password requirment

Doesn't it allow you to skip (step 17 in below) & go on to configure login & password related parameters (step 18) change those restrictions ?

Then run the setup script again & change the root password
