Hello guys,

 

i’m actually facing following  issue with Netsight 6.2.X running on Hyper-V.

the logging on the system is always failing although the user is active on the system. The user password has been successfully controlled.

Two users are present: root and an additional user. Both of them do not gain access.

 

Any hint how to overcome it?

Access to the console (cli) is possible.

Is there any special way, how to configure new user for GUI access? Since those, I’ve configured so far a still not gaining access.

 

Thanks in advance for your attention as well as feedback.

 

Regards

 

Gradelain

please also note that if i  test any valid user on the console (CLI) as follow,i gain access.

> login  <valid-user>
> ---> password is required



but why i'm not gaining access  on the GUI using the same user ?

Are you running local or LDAP authentication.

Could it be that someone changed it from local to LDAP ?

Here a link how to change it back to local....

So assuming NO GUI ACCESS, but access via SSH.
Please review the following article. 80 percent of the time it does the trick.

Thanks Mike for the link. i used it unsuccessfully.
this is actually the ouput of the "nsproperties".

mysql> update nsporperties set VALUE = 'true' where VALUE = 'false';

mysql> update nsproperties set VALUE = 'true' where VALUE = 'false';
Query OK, 3 rows affected (0.00 sec)

There is a spelling error nsporperties should be nsproperties

true, but get a look on the second line.. has been corrected "nsproperties".
base on the ouput you cann see how the variable are set right now.

Regarding your question how to add a user to access the GUI...

First create the user in the GUI..
How to setup and Use Netsight Authorization/Device Access to access Netsight for specific users groups and privileges

Then create the account in the OS.
 - ssh to Netsight
#useradd "name"
#passwd "name"

Thnaks a lot guys,

it turns out that the customer has implemented additional security in its network which lead to the failure. everything fine now.
