Modifying the Administrator Username and Password

If you did not set the administrator username and password for your Drobo 5N during the setup process and would like to do so now, see Setting the Administrator Username and Password instead.

Otherwise, if you would like to modify the administrator username and password, or disable their use, follow these steps.

Note: You may need to be logged in to perform this action.

1.     In Drobo Dashboard on the All Drobos page, double-click on the appropriate Drobo device.

The Status page for that Drobo device opens.

2.     Click the Drobo Settings option on the Navigation menu, and click Admin.

The Admin Settings page opens.

3.     In the Username text box, modify the username for the administrator. “Admin” is the default.

4.     In the Password text box, select the default text that appears there, press the Delete key and enter a new password for the administrator.

5.     In the Confirm Password text box, select the default text that appears there, press the Delete key and re-enter the new password you just typed.

6.     Click the OK button.

A message box confirms that your settings have been saved successfully.

7.     Click the Yes button to close the message box and return to the Status page for your Drobo device.

The username you entered displays. The next time you need to log in to this device, you will need to use the new username and password.
