Enabling Emergency Admin Users

Follow

As a System Console Administrator, you can enable a single Emergency Admin user. This option is disabled by default.

The Emergency Admin user can only access the system with a directly connected keyboard and monitor.

 

The Emergency Admin user can only log in via the System Console and re-enable and reset a System Console Admin user’s password. When enabled, the Emergency Admin user’s default password is password. You should immediately change this password; however, note that this password does not have to adhere to the password guidelines explained in Logging in to the System Console of Your Server and Changing the Default Password.

In order to reset a System Console Admin user’s password, you must know the username. The user’s password is automatically reset to the default password, which is password.

To enable emergency admin users:

  1. Log in to the System Console.

    For more information, see Logging in to the System Console of Your Server and Changing the Default Password.

    Press the Enter key after each prompt.



  2. Enter m for more options.

  3. Enter A for Advanced Options.

  4. Enter 7 to select Emergency User.

    The Emergency Account menu provides the following options:

    • Enter A to add (or remove) the emergency account.

You should immediately change this password; however, note that this password does not have to adhere to the password guidelines explained in Logging in to the System Console of Your Server and Changing the Default Password.



  5. Enter X to exit.
