    @labanh Ah, quick answer (not meant to to be mean). DO NOT use the linux user fog for system administration. The linux user fog is a user account the FOG process uses. Please use a different user account for system administration. The linux user account like fogadm might be a better choice for system administration.

    I can tell you the fog installer script takes over the linux user fog when it install the fog program code. The password is recorded in the /opt/fog/.fogsettings file.
