  • Donald, when you set up the connector on the first client PC you joined to your server, you created a password for the console at that time. I'm afraid that, if you've forgotten that password, there's no way to recover it. The only solution is a server recovery (the specifics are in the documentation you received with your server) which will not affect your data. You should be careful not to choose the factory reset option; that will wipe all your installed hard drives.

  • I have gone through a System Recovery which is meant to take 60 mins, so far its 90 mins and still counting..

     

    I have also been asked if i changed the original password of the Console manager, but im not sure. Does the password for the managment screen get created on Install ?, or is there a default one supplied, i have the HP WHM.
