2.2. Setting a Password for the Piranha Configuration Tool

Before using the Piranha Configuration Tool for the first time on the primary LVS router, you must restrict access to it by creating a password. To do this, login as root and issue the following command:
After entering this command, create the administrative password when prompted.


For a password to be more secure, it should not contain proper nouns, commonly used acronyms, or words in a dictionary from any language. Do not leave the password unencrypted anywhere on the system.
If the password is changed during an active Piranha Configuration Tool session, the administrator is prompted to provide the new password.
