Activating the Rescue System
To start a server in the Rescue System, it needs to be activated in the control panel
Under "Main Functions; Server" select the desired server and then open the tab "Rescue". Here the desired variant can be activated.
The password that was given to you when you activated the Rescue System can now be used to login as "root" via SSH.
Restarting the Server
To load the Rescue System, the server must be restarted.
Mounting the Drive(s) in the Rescue System
Without Software Raid
You can display the detected drives.
ls /dev/[hsv]d[a-z]*[0-9]* # e.g. /dev/sda /dev/sda1 /dev/sda2 /dev/sda3
You can then mount the desired drive/partition.
mount /dev/sda3 /mnt
With Software Raid
You can display the detected MD devices.
ls /dev/md* # e.g. /dev/md0 /dev/md1 /dev/md2
You can then mount the desired MD device.
mount /dev/md2 /mnt
Mounting LVM Volumes
You can display the LVM Volumes.
ls /dev/mapper/* # e.g. /dev/mapper/vg0-home /dev/mapper/vg0-root /dev/mapper/vg0-swap
You can then mount the desired LVM volumes.
mount /dev/mapper/vg0-root /mnt
Resetting the Root Password
To reset the root password of the server, you must first mount the drives as explained in point 3.
Then use chroot to switch into the mounted system.
chroot-prepare /mnt chroot /mnt
You can now change the password directly by using passwd.
