Vmware UAG – It is the right damned password!!!

*Tap tap tap tap*

Login failed

*Tap tap tap tap*

Yes…You are typing the correct password. When setting up the UAG, there’s a minimum password complexity…It just doesn’t tell you that you met it or not… Honestly it’s up there with the firewall changes for VROPS they don’t tell you about, plus calling Domains ‘Realms’…

Anyway! Easily fixed – Root password on the console screen should be fine and do the following:

echo ‘adminPassword=P@ssw0rd’ > /opt/vmware/gateway/conf/firstboot.properties
chown gateway /opt/vmware/gateway/conf/firstboot.properties
supervisorctl restart admin

Lo and Behold! You can access the WebUI again…

One of my colleagues wrote a UAG Firewall rules generator which is worth a look!
