You must assign a password to the accounts that are members of the VxRail management ecosystem. Use the Appendix B: VxRail Passwords table to use as worksheets for your passwords.
Note: The Dell Technologies service representative will need passwords for the VxRail accounts in this table. For security purposes, you can enter the passwords during the VxRail initialization process, as opposed to providing them visibly in a document.
- For ESXi hosts, passwords must be assigned to the ‘root’ account. You can use one password for each ESXi host or apply the same password to each host.
- For VxRail Manager, a password must be assigned to the ‘root’ account [Row 1]. This credential is for access to the console.
- Access to the VxRail Manager web interface will use the ‘administrator@<SSO Domain>’ credentials.
- If you deploy the VxRail vCenter Server, VxRail Manager and vCenter share the same default administrator login, ‘firstname.lastname@example.org’. Enter the password that you want to use [Row 2].
- If you use a customer-supplied vCenter server, VxRail Manager uses the same ‘administrator@<SSO Domain>’ login credentials you use for access to the customer-supplied vCenter server.
- If you deploy the VxRail vCenter Server:
- Enter the ‘root’ password for the VxRail vCenter Server [Row 3].
- Enter a password for ‘management’ for the VxRail vCenter Server [Row 4].
- A Platform Services controller will be deployed. Enter the ‘root’ password for the Platform Services controller [Row 5].
- If you deploy vRealize Log Insight:
- Enter a password for ‘root’ [Row 6].
- Enter a password for ‘admin’ [Row 7].
Passwords must adhere to VMware vSphere complexity rules. Passwords must contain between eight and 20 characters with at least one lowercase letter, one uppercase letter, one numeric character, and one special character. For more information about password requirements, see the vSphere password and vCenter Server password documentation.
