I have YubiRADIUS VA 3.6.1 running on my VMWare environment. I cannot sign in to either they "yubikey" OR the "root" account for the Virtual Appliance.

I see there is a patch regarding this issue - but the patch says to sign into root as the first step.

When I attempt to sign into root using the credentials found in the Configuration guide (U:root/P:yubico) I get "Authentication failure".

Please assist

What I did is login to the Yubikey account, as explained in my other post.
Just click the Yubikey user in the opening screen and provide the password : yubico
The login will show 3 popups with errors, just click okay, ignore or whatever button is available.
When the popups are no longer on your screen you will be left with an empty desktop, just a mouse pointer.
Now press ALT-F2 on your keybord, this will open another popup.
In the textbox type : xterm and press enter.
This will give you a bash shell.
In the bash shell type : mkdir /home/yubikey
Then type : chown -R yubikey.users /home/yubikey
Then type : sudo reboot
After the machine is rebooted you can logint without errors using the yubikey account.

Extra tip :

Getting into a bash shell is always the first thing I do, even if theres no problems.
From the bash shell I type : passwd
Then I provide the old password and twice a new password for the yubikey account.
Then I type : sudo su
This will gain me root access.
Again I type : passwd
Now I type a new password for the root account twice.
There, security in an instance.
