PowerFlex Appliance - What is the default username and password for iDRAC?

Summary: To change the iDRAC default password is very important for server security

Article Content


Systems with an integrated Dell Remote Access Control (iDRAC) have a default user name and password, but you can also configure them with a secure password.

Default iDRAC login
In the iDRAC's default configuration, the login credentials are as follows:

  • Username: root
  • Password: calvin

Secure Password
For iDRAC9, a new feature called secure password is available during the purchase configuration.

  • If you have opted for secure default access to iDRAC, the iDRAC secure password is available on the back of the system information tag (Service Tag) under "iDRAC Default Password."
  • If you have not opted for secure default access to iDRAC, then the default password should be blank. In this case, the default username and password (root/calvin) apply.
