root password not working

Latest response


I have installed a devloper edition set up all root password and user password. After reboot for first time to login it asked my username and credentials. But it is not taking the password which i set. Even root password which i set is not working and i am not able to login to system. Could some one please help how can i login? or do i have to re-install every thing.



Hi Mohsin,

You may have to reset your root password to login into your system. This Red Hat KB would help you Resetting the Root Password of RHEL-7 / systemd
