MWG 6.8.7 - test in VMWare

Jump to solution

Hello,

we installed MWG 6.8.7 in VMWare for testing purposes.

We can log in on the video console with user 'root' and password '00000000'

Login  to the GUI with user 'admin' and password 'webwasher' is also working.

But we are not able to login via ssh.

We tried user 'root' and password '00000000' ==> access denied

We tried user 'root' and password '29277871' (last 8 digits of mac address) ==> access denied

mac address is:

[ethernet0.generatedAddress = "00:0c:29:27:78:71"

Any ideas what may be working wrong?

Another question is about the license file we can install on the test installation. Can we take the license file we are using in our prodcution environment? Or do we have to ask support for a test license?

Hope anyone can help.

Thanks in advance.

If you did not use a config.xml file while installing the virtual appliance, it did not set PermitRootLogin.

You must logon to console, edit /etc/ssh/sshd_confg, and chante permitRootLogin to yes.

Save and `service sshd restart`

Yes, you can use the same license.

Thank you very much for quick answer!!!

We installed now with a config.xml file on a virtual floppy disk in VMWare.

And after new instalation of  MWG we can connect via ssh.
