Password

Factory Generated Password for iDRAC9 (new for 14G iDRAC9) – By default, all PowerEdge servers will ship with a factory generated iDRAC password, to provide additional security. This password is generated at the factory and is located on the pull-out Information Tag located on the front of the chassis, adjacent to the server asset tag. Legacy Password - Customers who prefer the known, legacy password “calvin” should choose this option. For security purposes, Dell EMC strongly recommends changing any initial password as part of server deployment.
