Aruba VAN SDN Controller (invalid user & password combination specified!)



In this post, I will give the resolution of “invalid user & password combination specified” error by the Aruba VAN SDN Controller after fresh installation from the deb. package

Ubuntu version for the SDN Controller.

tesla@hpcontroller:~$ lsb_release -a
No LSB modules are available.
Distributor ID: Ubuntu
Description: Ubuntu 14.04.5 LTS
Release: 14.04
Codename: trusty

Problem: invalid user & password combination specified!

Resolution: Re-installation of keystone.

$ sudo service sdnc stop
$ sudo apt-get purge keystone
$ sudo rm -Rf /var/lib/keystone/
$ sudo apt-get install keystone
$ sudo /opt/sdn/admin/config_local_keystone
$ sudo service sdnc start

After that you can login to the system with default username and password:
