NDG, labs, and not knowing the root password. (esp. Chapter 13) RHEL 8, RH128

Again, for the life of me, I don't know why NDG changed the password in NetLab+ for RHEL 8, RH124 -- this breaks the labs in Chapter 13 (dealing with scp, sftp, and rsync).

Anyway, to keep things easy for my students, I'll have them use the follow command from workstation: before beginning the labs for Chapter 13, Sections 6 and 7:

ssh root@servera 'echo "redhat" | passwd --stdin root' && \
ssh root@serverb 'echo "redhat" | passwd --stdin root'

@LawrenceRodis I have not seen that issue with any of the RHEL 7 labs. We've been using those for the last 3 years or so.

Tracy,

RHEL7 labs where fine.  I ment Lab 7 of REHL8.  I emailed NDG and told them the issue,  I;d like to have the password they used and also have them fix it at some point.

I'll keep you updated.

@LawrenceRodis 

"Lab 7" doesn't mean much to me. If it is in the RH124 coursework for RHEL 8, which chapter and section is it in?

Or, what's the topic?

For example, I just finished RHEL 8, RH124, Chapter 15, Section 4 - this is the first guided practice lab on file systems.

----

Edit: I think you may be reffering to Chapter 13, Section 7 lab. No, I don't have the password. Another instructor emailed me and said NDG gave it to him. I haven't asked for it.

I'm going to leave my solution as-is for my students for now. Think of it as a learning opportunity.

Even so, NDG should put it back to the same one Red Hat uses in other environments.

Tracey,

I heard back from NDG(see below).  There is an update to their labs that we will be chcking out but I received this message.  And the kudos for the workaround is for you.

Also its guided exercise 7.4 (page 220 of the student guide).

Yes, we may want to update the content to show the difference in root password. That is an inventive workaround.

Looks like the root password in our distributed Master VMs is R3dH4t for the foundation0. I noticed in some of these labs you SSH as student@workstation. You should be able to su with R3dH4t.

Go ahead and give this to them, so you have a few less steps. Sorry for the inconvenience.
