Default Users of the NodeGrid

Default Users of the NodeGrid

The NodeGrid software comes with 2 default users:

- username: admin / password: admin

- username: root / password: root


The admin user has full access and control on the Web Interface and CLI. The access to the NodeGrid software can be done via browser (HTTPS), and via telnet/ssh/console (CLI). From CLI, admin user can switch to SHELL, but with limited privileges.

The root user has SHELL access to the Linux OS accessible via telnet/ssh/console, but not to the Web Interface. When switching to CLI, root user is just a regular user.


Note: Telnet service is disabled by default. It can be enabled in the Security :: Services page.
