I have all permissions enabled for my currently logged in user in NicTool. However, when I try to reset another user's password, I get the error "You must enter the correct current password to set a new one." I have no idea what their password is, so I can't enter it in the "Current Password" box and see if that works.
Also, I appear to have forgotten my password for the root NicTool user. Is there a way to reset that?
I found the root password and logged in as the root user. However, I get the same error when trying to change the user's password.
In the nt_user table is a column called is_admin. Flip that bit to 1, and you won't have to enter the previous password to change the another users password.
I changed the is_admin field for root to 1, but I'm getting the same issue while logged in as root. Attempting to change a user's password without entering the old one results in the "You must enter the correct current password to set a new one" sanity error.
I have a workaround by manually changing the password in the database, but I figure it'd probably be a good idea to get to the root of the problem.
Forgot to mention before, this is NicTool 2.20.
Ahah, there was a fix added in the 2.21 version of NicToolServer that makes is_admin work properly. It's available for download in the store.
Thanks a bunch, looks like it's time to file a ticket to do the update :)
