Recovery of the password

In some cases, such as the password of the Didactum monitoring appliance is lost or unknown, it may be helpful to restore the password identifier.

In this case the "Guest" account can be restored with all access rights.

You will then need to copy the file named: "resetuser.zer" into the root directory of a USB stick.

  • The name of the file cannot be changed.
  • Insert the USB stick into the USB socket located below the Ethernet interface and wait.
  • The update process is signaled by the flashing LED "ERROR".
  • After restoring the LED "status" begins to blink with increased frequency.
  • When finished, you simply remove the USB flash drive and initiate the reboot of the Didactum monitoring system.

You can now log in as "Guest" and have full access back again.
