Default password?
So, on this training course we have 'training' systems. Sort of 'almost production like' environments we can mess with with impugnity.

The 'management server' runs a linux variant. It has 2 accounts, and by default they both have the same (obvious) password.

When we started the lab, we were informed that the default password on the 'nasadmin' account had been changed to something a little more secure. Good stuff I thought, even though it's training, doesn't mean we should get sloppy about these things.

However they've _failed_ to reset the 'root' "Can do everything and anything" account password. So of course, rather than typing in the rather irritating 'nasadmin' password, everyone's logging in as 'root'.
