The user account "default" has the following privileges:
  1. "default" privileges: useradm and platadm
Upon logging in with this default account during initial installation, register at least one user account that has the useradm or platadm user privilege. For details on login authentication with the default user account, see "Logging In to the XSCF" in the Installation Guide for your server.
