Changing the Console’s User/Password


Is confusing. It’s only applicable if you’ve disabled RBAC and are still using Basic Auth. Customers would like more information about the current Console.

Use case was a customer that borked the initial password on install and could never log into RBAC. He wanted to know how to change the password in the initial setup without using RBAC.

cd /opt/puppet/share/console-auth/
/opt/puppet/bin/rake db:create_initial_admin['','password(2)']

(1) Cannot already exist

(2) Cannot contain commas apparently
