Orchid Fusion VMS uses a configuration file to store all of the system settings. This file may be edited to revise settings such as the Orchid Fusion VMS port number, the admin password, etc. Right after installation, you must set the admin password in the configuration file before you run the software. You can edit the Orchid Fusion VMS configuration file using your favorite text editor. (If you don’t have a favorite, try nano.)

The default location for the Orchid Fusion VMS configuration file in Linux is:

  • /etc/opt/fusion/fusion.properties

Refer to the Installation Support Topics section for a list of available properties.

  1. Open the Terminal program (CTRL+ALT+T).
  2. Open the Orchid Fusion VMS configuration file in the nano text editor by typing the following command: nano /etc/opt/fusion/fusion.properties. Then press Enter:

  1. Scroll down to review or set the Orchid Fusion VMS admin password (below). It will take effect only when Orchid Fusion VMS is started for the first time [typically meaning that the Orchid Fusion VMS database (at /var/lib/fusion/fusion.sqlite) does not exist when Orchid Fusion VMS starts].

Sets the admin password used upon first sign in. After the first sign in, the admin password can be changed via the user interface.

  1. Review or edit the remainder of the parameters as needed.
  2. Restart the Orchid Fusion VMS service to implement the new settings.
