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.

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.

I kept guessing and lucked out. It ended up being Administrator
