How to recover EMC Recoverpoint password

With EMC Recoverpoint, there are three default credentials

For Initial Setup (SSH or Console):

     Username is boxmgmt and Password is boxmgmt

For Admin Login; it's usually https://<your Recoverpoint IP address>

     Username is admin and Password is admin

To change passwords; login to https://<your Recoverpoint IP address>

     Username is security-admin and Password is security-admin

Now, even if you change the password or created new user account using "security-admin", sometimes you will still get "username or password incorrect" error message. Then you need to login to ssh, and use security-admin/security-admin.

Then enter the command "unlock_user" (Tip: you can simply type un<press TAB>; this will auto fill as well). Once you press enter you will see one or two locked account; then type "1" and press enter; repeat this process until you unlock all the locked account. You will be all good.
