Is there a way to change the SVM unix-user root password using CLI? I tried logging in on the SVM using root but access was limited and passwd not working. Any info or command to use?
Instructions vary by ONTAP version - which are you using? But in 9.7 and later, per https://docs.netapp.com/us-en/ontap-sm-classic/online-help-96-97/task_delegating_administration_to_svm_administrators.html
In the Administrator Details section, set up a password for the vsadmin user account.
Hope this helps!
Thanks for the reply, But I am referring to the local Unix user (root) under User and Groups.
You don't log in with those users. You log in using SVM accounts as per this:
