Vyatta – Unable to log into GUI : “Username or password is incorrect”

Issue

When trying to access the GUI you may observe the following error,

Username or password is incorrect.Failed to parse server data.

Solution

This is due to a bug with VSE 6.5 R2. Which is caused by the Vyatta Appliance not having an interface named ‘eth0’ present.

To resolve this,

  1. Edit the file ’/config/config.boot’ via vi.
  2. Change one of your interfaces to eth0.
  3. And then reboot your device.
