Password (admin), Removing

If the only FMS administrator has forgotten his password then the only option is for the system administrator (i.e. root user for the system on which FMS has been installed) to temporarily delete the password and have the FMS Administrator immediately assign a replacement password.

1. Locate the FMS users file. By default this file is located in /etc/opt/faximum/users but can be relocated anywhere. If the file is not in this location then examine the fms-config-directory parameter in the /etc/opt/faximum/faximum.conf file to determine the name of the directory that contains the users file.

2. Edit the file (as the root user) and remove the password parameter for the [admin] entry.
