If you run the command configure_edison --password, you will be asked to enter the new password. You will see that it should be a password between 8 and 63 characters. You can modify this limits by editing the file configure_edison. In order to do so, follow the steps below:
- Open the configure_edison file by running the command: vi /usr/bin/configure_edison
- Search for the function setEdisonPassword()
- The limits are set in the line 276, in the if statement. You only have to modify the numbers. I replaced the number 8 by the number 1. Optionally, you can modify the print statement as well to be consistent with the new limits.
- Save the file.
- Run the command configure_edison --password. This time you should be able to enter a password of at least 1 character. I tested it by entering 123 and it worked.
