Any chance to reset root password?

Recommended Posts

Hi,

 

During installation of DSM 6 (Jun's mod) on HP microserver gen8 I changed a root password to different than admin password. Today, couple days later, I can't remember this root password to finalise a WOL configuration :oops: . Any chance to reset root password?

 

Thx for any advise

K.

I think this is what you need. I found this 2 days back on a synology forum.

 

1. Login using putty or any other ssh client with administrator account (usually "admin")

2. You will be asked for a password. Enter the one for the administrator account

3. You will get a command prompt

4. Enter: sudo su -

5. You will be asked for a password. Enter again the one for the administrator account

6. You will get a command prompt root@...

7. Enter command: synouser --setpw root your_new_root_password

@bglf83: I have already done root password change, during installation of DSM. Unfortunately I forgot the password or did some typo :sad:
