Change the default password for the admin user

The unique, factory-assigned password for the default admin user account is printed on the bottom label of the device and on the loose label included in the package. When you first log into the WebUI or the command line, you will be required to change the password for the admin user prior to being able to save any configuration changes.

If you erase the device configuration or reset the device to factory defaults, the password for the admin user will revert to the original, factory-assigned default password.

Note If your device was manufactured prior to the release of firmware version 19.11.x, the default user name may be root.



  1. Log into the 6310-DX WebUI as a user with full Admin access rights.
  2. On the menu, click System. Under Configuration, click Device Configuration.

  3. The Configuration window is displayed.

  4. Click Authentication > Users > admin.
  5. Enter a new password for the admin user. The password must be at least ten characters long and must contain at least one uppercase letter, one lowercase letter, one number, and one special character.

  6. Click Apply to save the configuration and apply the change.
