InfiniShell version 5.5.10 uses a new method of Password Obfuscation. infinishellrc will receive an expected error after upgrading to version 5.5.10.

This issue can be corrected  by editing the password.

  • Open the file in your preferred text editor (for example VIM) - ~/.infinidat/infinishell/infinishellrc

    // infinishellrc
     {
      "paging": true,
      "log_file": null,
      "quiet": false,
      "keep_going": false,
      "color": "auto",
      "username": "admin",
      "password": "your_password",  <-- // Replace the obfuscated string with your password
       ...
     }


  • The infinishellrc file will be update and obfuscate the new password when you launch InfiniShell. 

There is no need to start a shell session. Invoking the shell executable will obfuscate the new password.

  • You can verify the obfuscation by opening the file and checking the password.

    // infinishellrc
     {
      "paging": true,
      "log_file": null,
      "quiet": false,
      "keep_going": false,
      "color": "auto",
      "username": "admin",
      "password": "!!!2UDNzITM",  <-- // Obfuscated string, generated by the system
       ...
     }

How to generate a new infinishellrc file 

  1. Create a default general configuration file: infinishell --write-default-config
  2. Edit the user name and password in the configuration file (~/.infinidat/infinishell/infinishellrc)
  3. Launch InfiniShell. The configuration file will be updated with the updated password.
