What is the SUSE login for the MySQL partner image...

I keep getting bad username when I use the lxuser that gets pre-filled by clicking the MySQL Test area.

reboot the VM, interrupt the loader, and enter this in the additional boot parameters field:

init=/bin/bash

Then, boot normally. You will eventually get a command prompt. Enter these commands:

mount -o remount,rw /

passwd root

passwd lxuser

exec /sbin/init

The two 'passwd' commands will prompt you for a new password and ask you to repeat it. The 'exec' command will finish booting the machine; you can ignore the error message about being unable to fsck the / filesystem.

BTW, the .vmx file for my copy contained an annotation that the passwords were 'MyMySQL' for lxuser and 'myroot' for root. In fact, the passwords for both were the former. You aren't entering the single quotes, are you? Capitalization is important, and note that you have to type the 'My' twice.

Actually, not 100% true.

1. They never said the usernames for the OS accounts (though root is typical).

2. They never gave the password for the OS root account.

3. The myroot password was for the MySQL root account, not the OS root account.

account, not the OS root account.

Ah, that makes sense. Of course, I didn't even find the annotation until I'd already broken into the system, so my recollection may have been a bit flawed. And I don't think that it was a very clear message. Where can you see annotations like that? VMware Player doesn't seem to show them anywhere. Are they displayed everywhere else?

Unfortunately, no. The Player UI doesn't have any place to view the Notes field. They show up in the Workstation or Server(s) UI. Also, Ulli and my VMX Builder Smiley Happy Or, you can go into the vmx file in a text editor and view them.
