Admin switch password on t520 w/TP6.1

t520 Thin Client
Other

I've just flashed a t520 with the new ThinPro 6.1 (x64) release. This was installed from sp76666.exe which I flashed to a USB stick and booted the t520 from. All this completed ok.

 

I'm now trying to enter Admin mode, but it's not accepting any of the 'default' passwords I've tried. To summarize, it's not;

 

admin

Admin

administrator

Administrator

root

password

 

Anyone know what the Admin switch password is now?

 

Thanks

Not the Thinpro Expert but on my newly flash the unit, I need to set root password when first time switing to root account.

 

There is no "default" root password on my unit.

Strange. All I'm prompted for is a password. It certainly doesn't look like I'm being asked to set one, which to be honest, I'd have expected.

 

The image deployment went fine. No errors. The TP desktop comes up ok as well. I select the Admin mode switch, and a password prompt pops up.

 

Maybe I'll try re-flashing the image again. Not convinced though.

Well, I re-flashed the t520 using exactly the same USB image (didn't even re-create the USB key), and this time it behaved differently. Before, there were at least 3 reboots with the message about important changes being made, but this time it was a straight re-flash with one reboot.

 

I don't know whether it was the fact before I was moving from a x86 to x64 image, and this time there was already an x64 image in the flash. The only other thing I did different was to make sure the LAN cable was disconnected during the re-flash.

 

Whatever fixed it, I was prompted to set an Admin password on the second flash.
