Cisco UCS Lost Username

Last Modified: 2015-03-08
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.
