FAS and V-Series Storage Systems Discussions

default factory login for Netapp FAS series ?


As per topic....



The default usernames are root on 7mode, admin on cDOT.  From manufacturing there is no password set.  The first time a 7mode system is booted it will load to a setup script.  Similarly in cDOT it will boot to either node setup or cluster setup, depending on the code version installed.  In a few corner cases, a partially configured cDOT system will boot to a login screen, username admin with no password.  


The one exception would be a "factory configured cluster", which would have included the password in the documentation but I think its been some time since any of those shipped.


If you've lost the password you can reset it via the serial port from the boot menu (requires a reboot).
