Here is the instructions to reset the user password on the DCO server (same user credentials to webmin):

Jef, Do we have a way to recover the Webmin username as well as the password? I have a customer who does not know either, so we can not use the procedure linked above since it requires that we already know the user name.

Hi Justen, It should easy to find out the user name (it should be listed in the /etc/passwd file, you can use cat or less to read the file). After rebooting the server in "recovery mode", then type for example: less /etc/passwd (type q to quite the file reading) Kind regards
