Can I change user name in SwOS?

Tue Jan 12, 2021 6:50 am

I'd like to change the username from the default admin to something else.
Is it possible? I looked into SwOS but only saw how to change the PW.

Thanks

Hello, the best way is to create a new user with full rights and then disable default admin user.

Not in SwitchOS.
RB750Gr3, RB750r2, CRS326-24G-2S (in SwitchOS), CSS326-24G-2S, CSS106-5G-1S, RB260GS
Not sure if I beat them in submission, or they beat me into submission

Warning: I know enough to be dangerous...
