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.


wikipedia FTW!

username: root

password: calvin

Wikipedia page on Dell DRAC


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.

Also works for Dell Cloud servers IPMI
