Environment

Novell Vibe 4
 

Situation

You are unable to login to Vibe as admin anymore and need to reset / set a new password.

Resolution

Here is example for MySQL database:
 
1. Stop teaming service.
 
2. Login to MySQL:
mysql -u root -p
 
3. Then change database:
use sitescape;
 
and set a password for user admin:

UPDATE SS_Principals SET password='bc8f3945a1466d220df9c91b655fb864b2664421', pwdenc='SHA' WHERE
name='admin' and type='user';
 
then exit MySQL.
 
4. Start teaming again.
Login as admin with original, default password admin. In other words password string used above is SHA encrypted "admin" string.
