Local device password

The device password affects the local devices. All devices managed by a specific Scout Server receive the same device password so that it is used to verify the access rights for the devices. The device password is requested by Scout for management tasks such as discovery.

The device password can only be changed centrally for all devices in the Scout Console. The initial password is set to elux.

We recommend changing the password immediately to avoid unauthorized configuration caused by local users.

Usually, the access rights do not allow users to modify their local device configuration in the Security dialog. However, if the user or administrator changes the device password locally for a device, this device can no longer be managed by Scout.

For further information, see Device password in the eLux guide.
