    Log into an event receiver

    docdriza

      Does anyone know what credentials to use in order to log directly into the event receiver?

       

      I went to my KVM > went to the reciever > hit Alt+F2

       

      I used root and NGCP as the usernames

       

      I tried using the default security password, and an my NGCP password.

       

      My recievers are on version 9.3.2

       

      Thanks.

          The user ID will be "root".

           

          Password would have been set at the time you keyed the Receiver to your ESM.

            Holy ****!

             

            Thank you so much. You have no idea how much time you just saved me.

             

            I think its proper to give some context to this question for just in case someone else runs into this issue.

             

            As a result of doing some testing, I ended up deleting one of my recievers. I was not able to simply re-add the reciever through the wizard. I called support and the told me I had to follow the instructions of the KB article below to run a recovery CD.

            Once this part is done I would have had to boot to the CD or USB stick and run the command below:

             

            cat /etc/NitroGuard/factory-id_rsa.pub > /root/.ssh/authorized_keys2

             

            Luckily I was still able to ssh to the reciever, I just wasnt sure what the credentials were. Once I was able to use the root credentials specified in the answer, I was able to run the comand above, and re-add the reciever.

              Hi Scott,

               

              I added Mcafee event Receiver within the ESM, but can not generate device and password key. See the error screen, please. Any suggestion?


              Thanks.
