During imaging, VIA generates a password for the root account of SDDC Manager and a thumbprint for the imaged rack. Both of these are required by the customer.


  1. Open a new tab in the browser where you were imaging the rack.
  2. Type the following:

    The browser displays the SDDC Manager password, bootstrap password, and rack thumbprint.


  3. Print the output.

    If you are a partner imaging the rack for a customer, send this print out to the customer along with the imaged rack.

    If you are imaging your own rack, keep this print out. You will need this password during bring-up.
