This articles describes how to change some of the 'out of the box' settings on the VisibleThread server.
VisibleThread Administration site username and password
The VisibleThread administration site is protected by a username and password.
On initial deployment the credentials for this page are username: ‘visiblethread’ password: ‘password’. These can be modified by logging in to the VisibleThread virtual appliance console and changing the settings in the ‘/home/visiblethread/tomcat/conf/tomcat-users.xml’ using the following steps:
- Type 'pico /home/visiblethread/tomcat/conf/tomcat-users.xml' at the command line and hit 'return'
- In the editor modify the following line to change the username and password:
<user username="visiblethread" password="password" roles="vtdeploymentadmin"/>
Hit 'Ctrl-o' and 'Ctrl-x' to save and exit the editor
Restart the VisibleThread application by typing the following at the command line:
sudo systemctl restart visiblethread-docs
