IPMI Logins and SB-327

Due to changes in California law with SB-327, the way iXsystems hardware uses IPMI credentials has changed.

Prior to SB-327

The previous default credentials can vary by system “family”:

TrueNAS Mini models, including the discontinued E+, used these default credentials:

Mini E and Mini X:

  • Username: admin
  • Password: admin

Mini E+, X+, and XL+:

  • Username: ADMIN
  • Password: ADMIN

X-Series systems (X10 and X20) had two sets of default credentials:

  1. Direct Serial Console connections:
    • Username: sysadmin
    • Password: superuser
  2. IPMI connections using ipmitool:
    • Username: admin
    • Password: admin

These credentials applied to both generations of M-Series systems and each model (M40, M50, and M60):

  • Username: ADMIN
  • Password: ADMIN

These credentials applied to each R-Series model (R10, R20, R20A, R40, R50):

  • Username: ADMIN
  • Password: ADMIN

After SB-327

  • The username is ADMIN.
  • X-Series systems use admin.

The random password is listed in the Basic Setup Guide included with the purchased TrueNAS Hardware and on a sticker applied to the back of the system. If neither location has this password, contact iXsystems Support.
