Vyatta documentation

Learn how to install, configure, and operate the Vyatta Network Operating System (Vyatta NOS) and Orchestrator, which help drive our virtual networking and physical platforms portfolio.

Set the root account username and password

Vyatta NOS has one predefined root user account, but the installation process requires you to change this to secure the system with a username and the password that you choose.

Attention: For security reasons, you should discourage use of the root account and create more limited user roles as appropriate.
When you are prompted during the installation procedure, set the username and password for the root account.
