OpenManage Integration for VMware vCenter Version 5.2 User's Guide

Enable or disable administrative accounts in iDRAC

Before setting up auto discovery, disable all IDRAC accounts except one which does not have admin access. After auto discovery, you can enable all accounts except the root account.

NOTE Before disabling the admin privilege, it is recommended that you create nonadmin user account in iDRAC.
  1. In a browser, type the iDRAC IP address.
  2. Log in to the Integrated Dell Remote Access Controller GUI.
  3. Do one of the following:
    • For iDRAC7: In the left pane, select the iDRAC Settings > User Authentication > Users tab.
    • For iDRAC8: In the left pane, select the iDRAC Settings > User Authentication > Users tab.
    • For iDRAC9: Go to iDRAC Settings > Users > Local Users.
  4. In the Local Users tab, locate any administrative accounts other than root.
  5. To disable the account, under User ID, select the ID.
  6. Click Next.
  7. In the User Configuration page, under General, clear the Enable User check box.
  8. Click Apply.
  9. To re-enable each administrative account, repeat steps 1–8 after you have successfully set up auto discovery, but select the Enable User check box now, and click Apply.
