This article details how to change the password needed to log in to the LEM CMC command-line interface.

  1. Log in to the cmc command-line interface using either a hypervisor console or an SSH client via port 22 or 32022 (if LEM is 6.2.1 or earlier, only port 32022 is open).
  2. Type appliance, and then press Enter.
  3. Type password, and then press Enter.
  4. Complete the wizard to change the password.
  5. To return to the root CMC command line, type exit, and then press Enter.

    Test the new CMC password by logging back in to the CMC interface.
