· Avaya

Log in via putty to system manager using admin/admin (default)

[admin@SMGR-01 account]# su – root

enter the root password (default root/root01)

[root@SMGR-01 ~]# groupadd -g 600 securityadmin

[root@SMGR-01 ~]# groups admin

admin : admin

[root@SMGR-01 ~]# usermod -aG securityadmin admin

[root@SMGR-01 ~]# groups admin

admin : admin securityadmin

[root@SMGR-01 ~]#

In your web browser enter the system manager address 10.x.x.x/smgr

Log with your admin password (default admin / admin) you will get a security message ignore it and change the web address to https://10.x.x.x/passwordReset/

Change your password to something simple like admin01 as you will need to change it again.

Now close your browser and open it againg and goto your system manager web address 10.x.x.x/smgr

** SMGR 6.3 : It appears in System Manager 6.3 you may need to http://10.x.x.x/local-login instead of the procedure above**

Click the reset password link in the bottom right and change the password making note of the password rules.

Login to 1system manager with you new password 10.x.x.x/smgr and you should now be able to access.

Finally go back to the shell and clean up

[root@SMGR-01 ~]# groupdel securityadmin

[root@SMGR-01 ~]# groups admin

admin : admin

All finished you can now exit.

    When trying to login via ssh using admin/admin, the prompt says:

    mkdir: cannot create directory `/var/log/usershelllog/22-07-2016′: Read-only file system

      Are you at root ?

    You should be able to login via SSH. Other thing to check is make sure your certificates have not run out.

    Why can you not login via ssh, its not allowing you to or you do noy have the login details.

      On my first try to login via ssh, I was able to use the account admin/admin. I was trying to reset the admin password for the web when something weird happened on the account. I tried to relogin via ssh, it didn’t let me.

    What else can I do if I can’t login via ssh?
