Linux shell access is available for troubleshooting and diagnostic purposes only. Use linuxadmin for both the default user name and password. For security reasons, you must change the default linuxadmin password during the first login from the Linux shell. The system saves the new password for future logins.

  • CAUTION: Changing the system state from the Linux shell can result in undesired and unpredictable system behavior. Only use Linux shell commands to display system state and variables, or as instructed by Dell Support.
