Changing the Password of the BMC


This task provides guidance for software commissioning engineers to change the initial password of the BMC to enhance security of the system after the first login to the CX116.

  • The password complexity check is enabled by default.
  • Use passwords that meet complexity requirements.
  • For security purposes, change the initial password upon the first login, and then change the password periodically.
