The predefined user account

Information about the predefined user account.

By default, the system has one predefined user account: the Vyatta user. The default password for the Vyatta account is Vyatta. The Vyatta user has administrator-level privileges and can execute all vRouter commands and all operating system commands. Note that, although the user can execute both vRouter commands and operating system commands, command completion and CLI help show only vRouter commands for clarity.
