Airwave GUI Login Failure

This morning I can't login to the GUI interface of my Airwave server with any account.  I can access the CLI OK though.


These account do not appear in the /etc/passwd file, should they?


Is there a way to create a new GUI account from the CLI? 


Any thoughts/suggestions appreciated.

Re: Airwave GUI Login Failure

GUI accounts are maintained in the database.

Check that the account isn't locked up from the CLI:


# dbc 'select id, username, login_attempts, is_enabled from users;'


and then if any user is disabled, you can quickly do:

for all user accounts:

# dbc 'update users set is_enabled=1;'

for just a single account:

# dbc 'update users set is_enabled=1 where id=###;'

Also, if you just want to reset the admin password back to admin, you can do the following:

# dbc "update users set password='2cf94b0aea63ebf7bf41c90fe500603e' where username ='admin';"

This will change the password back to admin so you can log in with admin/admin.

Had Admin disabled from incorrect logins but we thought it was a password issue. So we changed the password via the dbc command but it didn't give us access. 


This is a great, little known command. 


Thanks Robert!
