Changing the default compute node IPMI password

You should change the default password for the IPMI administrator account on each compute node as soon as you configure the IPMI port. You do not need to change the IPMI password on the storage nodes.

Before you begin

You have configured the IPMI IP address for each node.


  1. Open a web browser on a computer that can reach the IPMI network and browse to the IPMI IP address for the compute node.
  2. Enter the username ADMIN and password ADMIN in the login prompt.
  3. Upon logging in, click the Configuration tab.
  4. Click Users.
  5. Select the ADMIN user and click Modify User.
  6. Select the Change Password check box.
  7. Enter a new password in the Password and Confirm Password fields.
  8. Click Modify, and then click OK.
  9. Repeat this procedure for any other NetApp HCI compute nodes with default IPMI passwords.
