So I have 4 different OMV boxes including two OMV 3.0.99 Dell Poweredge 840 boxes. 3.0.00 was the highest version that would work with their old Xeons.
Anyway, one of these boxes, every so often when I try to logon it reports:
Software Failure. Press left mouse button to continue. Incorrect username or password.
They're local internal servers so I have the password saved in the browser, so I'm confident the password isn't wrong.
At this point I can't recall whether restarting the system usually worked or if I end up going into omv-firstaid to reset the password (it's only been three times it's happened, separated by a month or more), but this time when I tried resetting the admin password in first aid it said:
Updating control panel administrator password. Please wait ...
ERROR: Failed to execute command 'export PATH=/bin:/sbin:/usr/bin:/usr/sbin:/usr/local/bin:/usr/local/sbin; export LANG=C; usermod --password '$1$5u.LtJx3$QwLg7JhxcPHj/.0wWVEr.0' admin 2>&1' with exit code '1': usermod: cannot lock /etc/passwd; try again later.
Any idea what's going on? How to stop it perminently?? Is the password expiring or something and I'm just not getting notified or some other problem!?
Thanks for any input or suggestions!
