I just wanted to post and share my recent security audit and steps to secure the appliance.  I was searching for a KB, did not find one so I wanted to submit something the community could use to update the Web and SSH logins to the device.  Good luck!

 

VMTurbo Operations Manager 5.0 (Build 31255)

 

Web Console Logins to VMTurbo Operations Manager 5.0 (Build 31255):

root

administrator

operator

guest

 

SSH Logins to VMTurbo Operations Manager 5.0 (Build 31255):

root/vmturbo ( different than the web root user)

ipsetup/ipsetup

 

To update the SSH root user:

1.  SSH into the appliance

2.  passwd

3.  (Enter new password)

4.  Exit

5.  Test

 

To update the SSH ipsetup user:

1.  Login as root

2.  passwd ipsetup

3.  (Enter new password for the user ipsetup)

4.  Exit

5.  Test

 

Woohoo!  Your appliance logins are now all updated and ready for the next security audit!
