User Management

The default user admin with password netHero!123 is used for the initial login to the system. This user has administrative privileges to create or manage other users and to perform network management tasks. It is recommended to change the password for the admin user and to use a standard user account for access to the system. If you are unable to login with the default admin account after the first startup, please follow this guideline https://ipfabric.atlassian.net/wiki/spaces/ND/pages/1921843213/Invalid+default+username+and+password
