Sorry for noobie question, I don't see how to reset the password. I thought i was entering correct login details and its not working. In checking the puppet.conf file it says the user is pe-puppet. I thought i used an email address for the username. Both don't work, along with the password that I setup when installing. Hope I don't have to reinstall and start over. Thanks!

If you still have the answer file from the PE installation look for the following linesq_puppet_enterpriseconsole_auth_password and q_puppet_enterpriseconsole_auth_user_email in the answers.lastrun.${HOSTNAME} file.

You can get the username and password from answer files present in the directory where the setup is present.

If the answers files are not present on your machine then create a new admin user and use it to reset the original admin user's password.

Run following commands for creating new user,

#  cd /opt/puppet/share/puppet-dashboard
# /opt/puppet/bin/bundle exec /opt/puppet/bin/rake -f /opt/puppet/share/console-auth/Rakefile db:create_user USERNAME="" PASSWORD="123456" ROLE="Admin" --trace

Using new user you can log in to console and from console using "Admin Tools" reset ... (more)
