Admin Command-Line Tool

The admin-tool is a command-line tool that can be accessed on the PrivX server. To use the tool, you must log in as root.

Reset PrivX Admin User Password

To reset the password of a local admin user (for example, superuser), use the following command:

/opt/privx/bin/admin-tool password-reset <username>

You can also reset the password of a non-admin account using the same method.

Reset PrivX Role Context Limitations

If you lose admin access to PrivX due to misconfigured context limitations on critical roles, such as privx-admin or privx-user, you can disable the context limitation with command:

/opt/privx/bin/admin-tool role-context-reset <role1s>

You can reset multiple roles with the same command:

/opt/privx/bin/admin-tool role-context-reset role1 role2

After running the command, you can log back in to PrivX as an admin. Be sure to reconfigure the context limitation for the admin roles.
