Cisco UCS Lost Username

I have a Cisco UCS appliance and I'm trying to log in to the OS Administration GUI. I inherited the device and wasn't provided with the username or password. Using a local monitor and keyboard, I was able to perform the password reset but I don't know what username to use with the new password. I have tried administrator, admin, root, and a blank username, yet none of them work. I have the same issue when trying to log in through the local console or through SSH.

"The solutions and answers provided on Experts Exchange have been extremely helpful to me over the last few years. I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

No luck with either of those.

I reset the security password as well through that utility. Is that accessed through the same methods (SSH or console), just with a different username? If so, any ideas on the username for that account?

I just checked ours and the user for the OS administration is admin.
