Jweb Incorrect user/password after Junos upgrade on SRX
I have recently upgrade the Junos on my SRX to JUNOS 12.1X46-D86 built 2019-04-04 and ever since I am not able to log back into JWEB. I can get to the login page but when I try the credentials I use to login to SSH with it keeps telling me incorrect username and password. I have tried factory resetting the device, as well as zeroizing the system with no luck. I am afraid I will have to unistall Jweb and reinstall it, problem with that is I am not able to find the Jweb software for an SRX due to the EOL. Any help on this would be greatly appreciated.
Re: Jweb Incorrect user/password after Junos upgrade on SRX
I see the same issue on an SRX running 12.1X46-D86. After upgrade, J-web login fails,while SSH works fine. J-Web shows the following message- Invalid username or password specified - both for root as well as non-root user login attempts.
May 18 10:21:19 SRX checklogin: warning: can't get client address: Bad file descriptor
May 18 10:21:19 SRX checklogin: WEB_AUTH_FAIL: Unable to authenticate httpd client (username root)
May 18 10:21:35 SRX checklogin: warning: can't get client address: Bad file descriptor

May 18 10:22:08 SRX sshd: unlink(): failed to delete .perm file: No such file or directory

Seems to be an issue with this particular Junos version. Will update this thread later, if there is any fix.
