Ubuntu Server Password Recovery

I will immediately say that I know perfectly how to do it. I bought a server computer cheaply. working, but with a password. The problem is that on ubuntu in the command line I can not change the RO (read only) parameters to RW (read & write). Through recovery mode - root: the command line does not exit, but writes Enter the password or say "control-D". Conclusion: the right to Change Password is blocked. How to fix it?

Usually you don't need a password to log in to the root command line through recovery mode. Have you tried pressing Ctr + D ? Otherwise I'd recommend you to install a Ubuntu (or an other Linux server distribution) freshly. If you want to backup your data copy /etc and maybe /home to an other HDD

I appreciate your answers. Yes. I pressed ctrl D, after that the system drops me on the resume line in recovery mode. and yes, I probably have no choice, I will reinstall the system.

It can not be done that way on this PC

ok. Live CD , Ubuntu ISO, SUDO SU is not working too. system wrote the same thing...

Aaron Eberhardt. I did it. Recoveru Mode is not help too. because: Root - enter. System is wrote: enter the password or Control D. (no Command line) I suspect that the system has somehow installed write protection/block. I can't change RO mode to RW mode.

Any ideas about Blocking RO/RW mode.???

Ok, if not difficult to explain. how to change it. what are the commands and where to enter. because I entered the "E" ubuntu. wrote in the linux line "rw init = / bin / bash (or sh)" + f10. And then "mount | grep -w/" "passwd root (or user)" entering new password, but nothing happen. how to change sudo settings, where to enter?

Ok. For more additional information I'll put screenshots soon... in here..

I told to You. Ubuntu - E - init=/bin/bash F10. Goes to Command line. I write : passwd "username" and nothing happend. I can't even write full username, system blocked me.

You need to change the .bashrc Or sudo su....if I'm understanding you correctly

+2

have you tried: passwd username ? Btw. root has all privileges, so he can read write nearly everything

+2

That works too...

you need to get to the root command line in recovery mode first, if you are there you will notice a # after the username instead of $. Just asking, you want to change the password, right?

It's not hard passwd username

you need to boot in recovery mode and then select root console
