Does anyone know of a way to recovery/reset the CCMAdmin password in CallManager 4.2?
I don't have many details unfortunately, but a customer has deleted one of the admin accounts for CallManager 4.2. This isn't the Windows admin account, but the CallManager admin account. The original CCMAdmin account still exists (I think). I can find processes and utilities to reset this password, but only if you already know the password - more of a password change than a recovery/reset.
I've heard whispers of a TAC method for recovering this password that wasn't published. There is no TAC support for this system.
I found a config file (sorry, I don't have access to the system now and can't remember the exact file) that had the CCMAdmin username and a password entry that was apparently hashed. I tried to reverse the hash with no success. My thought is that I could enter that password by hand and restart the cluster to recover it.
I'm sorry for being so vague. I don't have access to the system now and am not very well versed with the older CallManager versions.
Are you getting this error “Installer User Interface Mode Not Supported. The installer cannot run in this UI mode. To specify the interface mode, use the -i command-line option, followed by the UI mode identifier. The value UI mode identifiers...
The below trick might come handy when you have to add a new node to a cluster but you don't have or is unsure of the security password for the publisher. This procedure has been around for ages.
1) Login into the CLI of the Publisher.
