Problem

One of my customers forgot the SecurePIN... Access via SSH/ROOT is still working. How can I reset the SecurePIN?

Solution

As long as you have access via SSH and the Root-Password is still known, you can reset the SecurePIN easily. The SecurePIN is stored in /opt/loxberry/config/system/securepin.dat

To reset the SecurePIN to the default setting "0000", please login via SSH/Putty, switch to the root account and delete the file securepin.dat. After that a reboot is needed.


COMMAND  su -

COMMAND  rm /opt/loxberry/config/system/securepin.dat

COMMAND  reboot

 

After a reboot the file will be restored to the default setting. The SecurePIN is "0000" now.
