I have clustered Data ONTAP 8.3.0 with FC, iscsi, CIFS protocol configured in the SVM.
Why do I see the "root" user under the SVM > users and groups > UNIX > users. Kindly see the screenshot attached.
Unfortunately I can log into the SVM by this "root" user with the SVM lif and password "admin". Now security team is after me to change this password to something complex but the command doesn't work. See the below output:
cluster1::> security login password -vserver SVM-STORAGE01 -username root
Error: command failed: entry doesn't exist
When I try to list down the available users from cli it doesn't show the "root" user.
cluster1::> security login show -vserver SVM-STORAGE01
User/Group Name Application Method Role Name Locked
---------------- ----------- -------------- ---------------- ------
vsadmin ontapi password vsadmin yes
vsadmin ssh password vsadmin yes
2 entries were displayed.
But when I try to login to the that SVM using the the svm lif I can login using that “root” account with a password “admin”. And it gives only limited number of commands to execute. Kindly see the below cli output.
login as: root
Using keyboard-interactive authentication.
SVM-STORAGE01::> security login password
Error: "security" is not a recognized command

You will need to upgrade ONTAP to 8.3.2P4+:
