Cisco UCS CIMC Default Password

This is a quick note about the default passwords in a Cisco UCS C series system and how you can reset the credential.

If you are lucky when acquiring a UCS server, your system is already at the default credentials. Those default credentials are:

username: admin
password: password

If the default passwords are not set, then shame on the previous owner for not completely clearing out legacy data.

When the system is running through the Power on Self Test (POST), you are able to select F8 to access the CIMC administrative page.  From there, in the lower right you are able to reset your password.  Afterwards, accessing the administrative pages with the username admin is successful.
