Where to find the default login info if it doesn't display after a Katello/Foreman installation


#1

I followed the installation instructions as listed here for CentOS (Foreman :: Plugin Manuals). After the Foreman installation the login credentials were not displayed. I was able to find the initial_admin_password here:

/etc/foreman-installer/scenarios.d/katello-answers.yaml

initial_admin_username: admin
initial_admin_password: vUerA7dnSXj358fL

The password will of course be different for your particular installation…

You can also use foreman-rake permissions:reset to reset the password at any time. You can calso pass it a username or password parameter if needed, e.g.:
foreman-rake permissions:reset username=greg password=1234
(though keep in mind this should only be used for internal admin users, as it will reset the authentication source and set the user to be admin)
