So I bought a SG115 appliance only and I am trying to load my home license onto it and it is telling me I cannot load an ASG license on the appliance. I deleted my old license and recreated a new one with the same results.
Anyone offer any help on this?
I did a reinstall,
then I got this:
When I do a ls at root it shows one file "bin" thats it...
Has this process changed at all for more current versions of 9.3/9.4 etc?
I have an SG115w that I'd like to run on my home license.
Rather than rm, I would
mv /etc/asg /etc/asg.bak
That would allow you to mv it back and load from an appliance ISO instead of the software ISO.
Note that the free home-use license may not legally be used in a business.
Cheers - Bob
Thanks Bob. Using this at home for the time being.
So this method will work fine on current firmware releases? And the wifi on the unit will work just fine?
You should have no problems, Wesley. An Up2Date is blind to whether it's being applied to an appliance or a software version. If you have to reload from an appliance ISO, it must find /etc/asg intact. It's not important for the units in the 1xx series because there's no front LED panel as there is on the 2xx series and above. The internal wireless would work with both the appliance and software images.
Fantastic - thanks much Bob!
I have an SG 115w that I am using at home. I bought it new, used the trial license for 30 days, and now want to install the Home license. I read above about moving the ASG file, but am assuming I have to login to the CLI on the box. My question is do I use admin and then the password that I set up during the WebAdmin wizard to do this? If not, how do I login?
Hi Jeremy and welcome to the UTM Community!
If you've never logged in as root, you should be prompted to enter a new password for it when you first attempt a root login.
If you've forgotten the password for the root account, follow the steps in How to reset all passwords.
Thanks for the advice. Well I never set the root password, but nevertheless it seems to have one as it does not prompt me but just asks for a password. Do you know why that might be? I am running UTM 9.702, the box came with 9.6xx so maybe it was set during the update?
Anyway I am running through the hardwired access method to reset root. I ran into a peculiar problem. I am using a connected monitor/USB keyboard method (I am at the point (step 8? of the URL you sent How to reset all passwords) of putting in the init=/bin/bash command to set it up, the instructions for step 9 say to press "Enter", but when I do it kicks me back to the previous screen for starting the kernel. I am trying a couple of Apple keyboards but no luck.
Is this a keyboard problem? If so, what recommendations do you have?
No idea, Jeremy - I've never had to follow that path and none of my clients have either.
It's been a loooong time since I've done it, but, when you first try to login as root, I think you give it any password you want and then it asks you to type it in again to confirm. Did that work for you?
Okay, got it done with a Dell keyboard. Seems like the passwords reset this way are single use only, is that correct? The whole reason I did this was to move the asg license so I could install a home license after the 30 day trial period. I ended up having to move the file as "root" as "loginuser" did not have permissions. Anyway, after that the process was pretty straight forward. I've now set "root" and "loginuser" through WebAdmin, and the passwords now persist.
Anyway, thanks for the help.
