Server Editionsecurity reset command line

Server Editionsecurity reset command line

(OP)
Hi

Some time ago I came across a post here about resetting the security settings on the SE via a linux console login as root, but now cannot find it for the life of me!
Could anyone point me in the right direction please?

Thanks! :)

RE: Server Editionsecurity reset command line

Login with Administrator (SSH) and Searcy in the menu.
Could be the configure menu.

BAZINGA!

I'm not insane, my mother had me tested!

I eventually found what i was after (not the actual post though)
It was

/opt/Avaya/clish

Cheers

RE: Server Editionsecurity reset command line

Thanks for posting a resolution. It would be really cool if you could write a short FAQ detailing the proceedure and post it for later reference.

RE: Server Editionsecurity reset command line

It should be possible from the cli.

BAZINGA!

You can erase all security settings from the CLI if you're connected locally, but not via SSH that I've found.

Locally you can do the following:

Login as Administrator
Enter - /opt/Avaya/clish (This gives you the Avaya CLI)
Enter - admin
Login as root
You'll get Admin> prompt
Enter - root
Login as root (This will take you to the bash prompt)
Enter - /opt/Avaya/clish (For the Avaya CLI AGAIN)
Enter - admin
Login as root
You'll get Admin> prompt
Enter - at-commands
You'll get AT-commands> prompt
Enter - erasesecurity

This is with Release 11. It seems counter productive that you have to go through these loops, but that's the only combination that I've successfully used. Without entering root and logging in as root, you don't have the permissions to run the security command.

RE: Server Editionsecurity reset command line

It makes sense for security reasons that you can't reset it via SSH, although since you can do it via Manager it doesn't do much :)

Locally I can just login as root and reset it.

Behold the power of 'screen' :)

CODE -->

AT-commands> erasesecurity
You do not have enough rights to issue this command. You have to be connected locally as root.

AT-commands> exit
Admin> exit
> exit
[root@005056A4E466 kyle]# screen -l
[root@005056A4E466 kyle]# /opt/Avaya/clish
