Change the LEM CMC password

Updated: September 15, 2017

The CMC command-line interface (CLI) is used to connect to the LEM VM and perform administrative tasks. SolarWinds recommends that you periodically change the password used to access the CMC command-line.

These steps require the current CMC password. The default password is password.

  1. Open the CMC command line. See Log in to the LEM CMC command line interface for steps.

  2. Type appliance and press Enter.

  3. Type password and press Enter.

  4. Complete the wizard to change the password. See Special characters allowed in CMC commands and passwords for help choosing a CMC password.

  5. Type exit and press Enter to return to the root CMC command line.

    Type exit and press Enter again to log out and close the CMC interface.

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

Recover a lost CMC password

Contact SolarWinds Support for help if you no longer have the CMC password needed to log in to the CMC interface. You can still access the CMC interface without the CMC password by logging into the VM console through the hypervisor and clicking on Advanced Configuration.
