Ubuntu Server 18.04.2

This Ubuntu Server 18.04.2 OVA was created in VMware Workstation using basic common sense. I 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. Change the server hostname by editing the file: /etc/hostname
  9. Reboot by typing: reboot NOTE: This is now your server!
  10. Continue by adding components such as on The Perfect Server tutorials on HowtoForge.

  1. Hello John,

    Normally go to /etc/ network/interfaces to set up my network, but this one looks very different.
    Would you like to explain how you install your network and which steps you go through
