• We are running FOG 0.32 on a Linux box, currently, it is not registering the host. Would like to reboot the server, at least log in to see what changes need to be made. How can I recover the Admin password? The person that left cant be contacted.

  • Single User/Rescue mode for the win.

    Maybe, boot into a live CD and chroot the root directory, and then change the password that way?

  • If you don’t have access to the linux box, “single user mode” is your friend. Google that and it will allow you to change passwords etc.

    If you are referring to an administrator account for the FOG web management portal you can set the password to be blank by running these terminal commands on the FOG Server

    sudo mysql -u root -p
    use fog;
    UPDATE users SET uPass = NULL WHERE uId = 1;

    This will wipe the first user’s password, which is the default administrator account.

  • also, the primary issue is the menu screen comes up, I can selet quick register it does a few things then shows Attempting to Log into Host but the screen just incrementally goes down a line…
