We've just got a brand new Dell M1000e blade chassis ^.^ (Squee!).

We've no idea what the username/login for the Dell CMC manager is.

Anyone know? We've mountains of paper and docs from Dell, and haven't found the answer there yet.

This link says the default username/password are root/calvin […. Did you try that? – Khaled Jan 31 '12 at 11:52
Try username: root; password: calvin – joeqwerty Jan 31 '12 at 11:52
@Khaled It's much quicker if I ask questions and people give me answers. – Tom O'Connor Jan 31 '12 at 12:15
root/calvin seems to be the standard logon for Dell BMC / CMC / DRAC & DRAC/MC. – Robin Gill Jan 31 '12 at 15:30

Have come across this in the past.

The default CMC user name is root, and the password is calvin. The root account is the default administrative account that ships with the CMC. For added security, Dell strongly recommends that you change the default password of the root account during initial setup.
