Passwords required for BIG-IQ system deployment

To install and configure a BIG-IQ system or data collection device (DCD) cluster, you use the default passwords for all of the devices. For DCD clusters, if you intend to schedule regular snapshots of your logging data (as recommended), you need root access credentials for the machine on which you plan to store these snapshots.
Passwords for data collection device cluster deployment
User Name
Default Password
Access Rights/Role
admin
admin
This user type can access all aspects of the BIG-IQ system from the system's user interface.
root
default
This user has access to all aspects of the BIG-IQ system from the system's console command line.
When you log in to the BIG-IQ for the first time, you must change the default admin password before proceeding to the user interface. When you change the admin password as part of this initial login, BIG-IQ also resets the root password to match it. During initial setup, you can change them both again.
