Setting passwords for users in FOG management issues...



  • It seems the passwords I set cannot have any special characters in them. (@, $, *, &, as examples). For example, if I reset the default fog user from the default “password” to “p@$$w0rd” it will error out on me and say invalid password. I also tried to reset it through the database via the following link and I was not able to log in at all:

    [url]http://www.fogproject.org/wiki/index.php/Reset_WebUI_FOG_password[/url]

    I’m running FOG 0.32 on Ubuntu 10.04.4 Server. Any insight into the issue would be appreciated. Thanks!



  • That worked. Thanks!

    I have not adjusted the passwords but I know there is a section of the Web GUI where you can set the characters accepted for a password.

    Click on Other Settings, then FOG Settings, 3/4 of the way down the page

    User Management

    FOG_USER_MINPASSLENGTH
    FOG_USER_VALIDPASSCHARS

    default is set to 1234567890ABCDEFGHIJKLMNOPQRSTUVWZXYabcdefghijklmnopqrstuvwxyz_hB()^!
    try setting it to 1234567890ABCDEFGHIJKLMNOPQRSTUVWZXYabcdefghijklmnopqrstuvwxyz_hB()^!@#$%^&*-=+

    I saved the changes and it accepts the characters but again, I’ve not tried adjusting passwords.
