Changing the GRUB Boot Loader Password (CTPView Server Menu)

Change the GRUB Boot Loader password at least yearly and whenever administrators change.

Before you begin, log in to the CTPView server and access the CTPView Configuration Menu. See Accessing the CTPView Server Configuration Menu (CTPView Server Menu).


You cannot use an SSH application to access the CTPView server until you have configured the server in your network and assigned it an IP address. See Configuring the Network Access (CTPView Server Menu).

To change the GRUB Boot Loader password:

  1. From the CTPView Configuration Menu, select Option 8 (GRUB Functions).
  2. Select 1) Change GRUB password.
