reset password on ubuntu 10.04.3
location: ubuntuforums.com - date: February 4, 2012
I am brand new to Unbuntu. I have never installed it before but do have a little experience with Linux.
The company I work for just bought another company that went out of business and one of the PC has Unbuntu 10.04.3 installed. I tried to boot to GRUB but I don't ever see the promt to get any GRUB menu at all.
I want to get to the data on this PC, are there any tools that can help me, whether a password crack tool, or anything that I can use to see the hard drive.
I tried Knoppix, but the drive was not mountable.
thanks in advance!!
How to protect Root password so it cannot be reset
location: linuxquestions.com - date: April 2, 2005
I've just read (and tried) that you can easily reset the root password on a Linux system (I'm using Fedora) without having to enter the current one to begin with. This concerns me and I would like to stop this from happening. Does anyone know how? I imagine it was put in place so if the root password was forgotten, it could be changed. I don't like this. Here is how it was done:
At the grub login prompt, add to the default boot command:
at the next prompt, type "passwd"
you're prompted to create the root password (without having to enter the current one).
Other than creating a grub password, is there a way to stop this?

How to reset root password for Redhat machine
location: linuxquestions.com - date: October 25, 2010
Yesterday, when I was installing Redhat Enterprise 5.4 on a HP server, I asked myself "how can I regain my access to the server if I happen to forget the root password?" I knew there must be a way. I consulted with my friend "Google". He helped me resolved the issue. I'd like to share it here as my 1st post (too bad that I'm not allowed to paste screenshots)
1) Boot up the server, when you are at the "Red Hat Enterprise Linux Server..." entry, press "e".
2) Highlight the "kernel /vmlinuz...." line then press "e" again.
3) Type the word "single" to the end of the line (with an empty space before the word single). Press Enter.
4) Press "b"
5) System will boot. When you get the prompt "#", type "passwd" to enter in new password for root.
6) Reboot the system. Done
Hope it helps.

Reset windows password does not work
location: linuxquestions.com - date: June 16, 2011
On a Windows Vista Laptop I tried to reset the user password following the instructions here
Although I was using a debian 6 live cd not ubuntu.
I mounted the windows drive by clicking on it and then installed chntpw and successfully blanked the user password and saved the change
However when I tried to log into windows it did not work.
Is it possible that maybe the drive was mounted read only???

How to Reset Password Expiry in OpenLDAP
location: linuxquestions.com - date: November 30, 2011
I am trying to find how to change some password policy settings in openLDAP (on a system-wide level) level not on a per user level)such that ALL LDAP account users ie existing and new users have their passwords to expire after 90 days.
I know the main parameter that controls this is the maxPasswdAge parameter but i am not sure how to set this .I have tried different LDApmodify options
but it fails
ldapmodify -W -x -D "cn=Manager,dc=mydomain,dc=local" -f test.ldif
the error messages was .. modifying entry "cn=pwdpoilicyentry,cn=common,cn=products,cn=Oraclecontext,dc=mydomain,dc=com"
ldapmodify :no such object(32)
matched DN: dc=mydomain ,dc=com
My questions are
1. Are there any alternatives to doing this ie 1. just change a setting manually somewhere in some configuration file and restart
Reset openldap admin password on ubuntu 8.10
location: ubuntuforums.com - date: January 30, 2009
I need set up our server environment on my local machine for code testing. We have openldap set up on our prod servers. Only thing is, I know nothing about openldap and how to configure it.
I did a sudo apt-get install slapd ldap-utils
I could recall that somewhere I was requested to enter my ldap admin password. But it seems like the password didn't get stored / is different because when I tried to run a shell script (written by someone from my company) to populate the LDAP directory and get prompted for my ldap password, I get:
ldap_bind: Invalid credentials (49)
Error whilst loading LDAP data. Halting.
Is there a way to reset the ldap admin password?
Sorry for not being clearer - my knowledge on (open)ldap is very limited.
By the way, I'm running XUbuntu 8.10 + openldap-2.4.11
