Help Me Choose: iDRAC Password

 

Secure Default Password: By default, all PowerEdge servers will ship with a unique, randomly-generated iDRAC password, to provide additional security. This unique 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.
Customers who choose this option will need to note this unique random password and use it to log in to iDRAC for the first time. For security purposes, Dell EMC strongly recommends changing the default password.

Legacy Password:
For customers who prefer the known legacy password “calvin” should choose this option. One reason to select this option would be to ensure conformance to current scripts. For security purposes, Dell EMC strongly recommends changing the legacy password.
