Problem changing ALE password at first login

[ Edited ]

Hi All,

 

I thought I would play with the eval of ALE, so I have deployed it to our lab ESX host, but when I try change the password as required at first login i just get pushed back to the login.

 

I can log in again with the default root/admin credentials but get prompted to change the password but not re type it as i would expect and then get sent back to the login.

 

I have tried ALE-1.2.0.0-42792 & ALE-1.2.1.0-43065 but hit the same "issue" both with the ova and the iso

 

does anyone know if there is a known issue and there is a special way to sort the first login out (possibly booting into single user mode)

 

cheers

 

Andy

hmm it should let you change it.
Give me a few min and I will fire up a VM of 1.2.1

I just tried it on 1.2.1 and it worked. After you login with root/admin, it asks you for your current root password which is admin, then it will ask you to change it.
