Is your Dell Drac/idrac default password still calvin?

I’m sure many folk already know this oldie. But you wouldn’t believe how many times I’ve seen a reset config rather than a soft reset of an unresponsive drac being performed using racadm resulting in the default password being reinstated.

Default IP:

Default username: root

Default password: calvin

Best practice should be to reset root user to have a complex password. Or even enable LDAP integration of supported on your card.
