The Oracle ILOM root user account is a persistent local user account that is available on all Oracle ILOM interfaces

, unless, you choose to delete the persistent root user account.
Built-in administrative privileges – The root account includes built-in administrative privileges (read and write) for all Oracle ILOM features, functions, and commands.
Recommended security practice – To prevent unauthorized access to the managed server or CMM, you should either:
  • Modify the default root password (changeme) provided on each Oracle ILOM service processor (SP) or chassis monitoring module (CMM).

    - or -

  • Delete the preconfigured root account provided on the Oracle ILOM SP and Oracle ILOM CMM.

    Prior to removing the preconfigured root account, you must replace the root account with a customer-configurable local user account or a directory service such as LDAP or Active Directory.

Note. When the root account password is set to changeme (default password), a warning message appears in the CLI upon logging in and a warning message appears in the top portion of the web interface page.
  • Username: default

  • Password: defaultpassword

The preconfigured default user account provided in Oracle ILOM is limited to password recovery.
Local serial console use only – The preconfigured default user account is available for use through a local serial connection only. Also, you must be able to prove physical presence at the server or CMM.
Usage Scenario – If you delete the root account in Oracle ILOM prior to replacing the root account with a customer-configurable account, you can use the default account to log in to Oracle and use the normal Oracle ILOM commands to create a new account.
