Controlling access to the appliance console

Use the hypervisor management software to restrict access to the appliance, which prevents unauthorized users from accessing the password reset and service access features. See Restricting console access.

Typical legitimate uses for access to the console are:

  • Troubleshooting network configuration issues

  • Resetting an appliance administrator password

  • Enabling service access by an authorized technical support representative

The virtual console is displayed in a graphical console; password reset and Hewlett Packard Enterprise Services access use a non-graphical console.
