Changing the root Password for the SRC Software (SRC CLI)

An account for the user root is always present in the configuration. Only the root user can change the root password. You can change the root password with the SRC CLI, but not with the C-Web Interface.

To change the root password:

  1. Log into the SRC software as root.
  2. From operational mode, change the root password.
    root@host> set cli password Changing password for user root.New UNIX password:

You can also create a regular account for root and set the SSH key there. The class for root is always super-user—if you create an account for root, the class is ignored.
