Univention Bugzilla – Bug 35400
root / Administrator password
Last modified: 2016-11-28 11:28:05 CET
The new UCS installer asks for the root password itself.
When later running USS we either need to
- ask for it again,
- use a different password for the LDAP administrator,
- or move the question to USS itself and set a random password in the installer, to prevent remote ssh logins (on the other hand that might be useful.)
As discussed with Alex, the installer should set an UCR variable and USS should skip the password question.
Definitly not in UCR.
Maybe better through /var/lib/univention-ldap/root.secret.

Yep, and a flag is set via UCR to indicate that the password field is hidden in the wizard.
FYI: The UMC-Server core provides the neat functionnality that every user can read all UCR variables without having the UCR UMC module installed, it is just enough to be authenticated.
r13284: root password is stashed in /var/lib/univention-ldap/root.secret (unless only a pre-encrypted password is supplied by pre-seeding).
r13471: 06user-setup needs to be called before USS is started
UCS 4.0-0 has been released:
