In this article, we will explain how to restart the root user password of the McAfee TIE(Threat Intelligence Exchange) server. In a very busy environment, forgetting passwords usually happens to us. Now, by following the steps below, let’s restart the root user password of the McAfee TIE server.
After restarting McAfee TIE Server, we press the letter “e” when starting.
After pressing the letter “e“, a screen like the one below will appear.
On the next screen, we type the command “init=/bin/bash” and press enter.
On the next screen, we press the letter “b” this time.
On the boot screen, we write the command “mount -o remount,rw /“. We press the enter key.
mount -o remount,rw /
Then type the “passwd” command and click enter.
Then we enter our new password and press enter. It asks for the password we entered again and we enter the password again. We press the enter key. As you can see on the screen, we have successfully changed the password of our root user.
Finally, we provide the synchronization by typing the “sync” command and restarting our server with the “reboot -f” command.
sync reboot -f
