Re: Event Receiver default password

Dear Customer,

You can try the password w3e4r5t6.

Normally, you just need to add the ERC to the ESM & key it. While keying you can set a new password.

If it is an already working setup, you can set a new password by going to Receiver Properties>Key Management>Key Device.

Re: Event Receiver default password

As mentioned by my colleague there is a default password but it only works from the console and it will only let you log in once.  After you log out, you will no longer be able to access a shell to interact with the system.

If you wish to upgrade a VM before keying it (e.g. to get it ready for keying into a SIEM environment running a more recent version) please see my KB article on doing so:
