root password

Post by rooter_c » 14 Nov 2019 22:50

Don't know if I'm doing something wrong, but I have followed the Migration Guide steps twice now, and something is resetting my root password after I copy the backup files across, then run through the eFa-Init wizard. Having to do a Centos root password recovery to progress.

I'm also getting these errors and no mail delivery. I'm not using DMARC or DKIM

Nov 15 10:36:22 eFa4 postfix/cleanup[3612]: warning: connect to Milter service inet:localhost:8891: Connection refused
Nov 15 10:36:22 eFa4 postfix/cleanup[3612]: 47DdCp6kn7zCLsT: milter-reject: CONNECT from localhost[127.0.0.1]: 4.7.1 Service unavailable - try again later; from=<root@towong.local>

root password is locked down by design. You can of course sudo in and change that if you desire.

Not sure why you have that milter, but edit /etc/postfix/main.cf and remove the milter inet:localhost:8891 and reload postfix. If you are not using DKIM, you don't need it.

Thanks, as suggested removed milter references to ports 8891 (and 8893) in main.cf, they don't seem to be getting removed when disabling dkim / dmarc as earlier suggested by tesme33

How can I allow root password and access from outside using tools like WinSCP or Putty.

I strongly suggest that you use ssh keys to allow access to your root account rather than setting a password.

It'll also make the winscp and putty tools easier to use.

Personally, I use a non admin account as my login using ssh keys, and then taking the second step of using sudo to make any changes that require root permissions.
