Default password after ontap 7-mode reinstall?

[ Edited ]

Hello,

 

Today, connected via ssh user naroot BMC console I have reinstalled ontap with option 4a

 

(4)  Initialize owned disks (xx disks are owned by this filer).
(4a) Same as option 4, but create a flexible root volume.

 

Netapp is not connected to network so I gave some dummy IP addresses and when everything was completed I have finished my ssh session.

What I didn't pay attention to is that NetApp didn't ask me about any new (or old) root password, and I was sure that since I didn't change any settings, BMC naroot password will stay the same. Unforunately now I cannot login with my password. Is there any 'default' password in such cases used?

Default is no password - just press return.

hi aborzenkov

 

thanks for your reply. Unforunatelly that tick didn't work:

 

login as: naroot
naroot@<bmc_ip>'s password:  <enter>
Access denied

naroot@<bmc_ip>'s password:

 

same with no username:

 

login as:
@<bmc_ip>'s password:  <enter>
Access denied

@<bmc_ip>'s password:

It's possible that BMC does not allow empty password. In this case the only way is serial connection. Fresh installed Data ONTAP definitely does not have any password.
