Photon OS is VMware's own version of Linux, optimized specifically to run as a VM. It is very RHEL-Like, so it will be a welcome improvement for VMware users who have been adapting to SUSE in recent years.

DO believe in working AS the root user (instead of all the 'sudo' garbage) but I DO NOT believe in allowing direct root access, so you'll have to su.

  • The username is: administrator
  • The password for administrator is: P@ssw0rd
  • SSH is open, but not directly for root
  • root is available after logging in as administrator by using the command: su -
  • The password for root is: P@ssw0rd

Here are some simple steps to get started:

  1. Import the OVA to your hypervisor
  2. Determine the IP address
  3. Connect using SSH with the username: administrator and password: P@ssw0rd
  4. Once connected, type: su -
  5. When prompted for the root user password, type: P@ssword
  6. Change the password for administrator by typing: passwd administrator
  7. Change the password for root by typing: passwd: root
  8. Clear your VM ID by running the command: echo -n > /etc/machine-id
  9. Change the server hostname by editing the file: /etc/hostname
  10. Change the server hostname/IP relationship by editing the file: /etc/hosts
  11. Reboot by typing: reboot NOTE: This is now your server!
