I recently re-organized my home lab and I got rid of a bunch of VMs for random projects that I have been working on last year. Part of this re-organization was to re-deploy a few of the virtual appliances found within the vCloud Suite. As part of the deployment, I often find myself scouring various documents looking for default credentials to the OS, VAMI interface or the application. It is not always easy to find and I often end up going to Google or the VMTN forums for the answer.

As a fun little exercise, I thought why not deploy all of the latest virtual appliance that are available in the vCloud Suite and just document the latest usernames/passwords for the application, OS, VAMI interface, database configurations, URLs, etc.? This would primarily be a reference for myself, but thought it might also benefit others as well. Duncan Epping had done this awhile back for vCloud Director and few other virtual appliance and funny enough, his site was one of the first ones I found for the default vCloud Director password.

Not only have I deployed all the virtual appliances from the vCloud Suite, which can be seen from the screenshot below,  but I also went through each appliance and validated the credentials for the application, OS or VAMI interface if applicable as well as identify all database credentials and configurations which are not all publicly documented (this took a bit of digging in the appliances, but was not too difficult if you know where to look).

Note: All credentials and configurations were identified by going through public documentation and exploring the virtual appliances, internal VMware documentation and Wikis were not used (that would have been too easy)

Below is a quick summary of the credentials for the each of the application, OS, VAMI interface as well as applicable database configurations for the 15 virtual appliances within the vCloud Suite. To view the full report on all the virtual appliances in the vCloud Suite, you can refer to either the Spreadsheet or HTML report.

  1. William,

    Thanks for your efforts!!

    I found an error in the attached XLS and HTML files:

    The vSphere Replication entry has “SAME AS APP PASSWORD” for the default OS and VAMI passwords. The information on your blog posting is correct.

  2. update
    vcloud director 5.1.2 OVA default user is root and password is vmware :-)
    hope this helps someone
    documentation for the appliance is almost non-existent …such a pathetic product with so much potential but so difficult to setup …serious bleeding edge tech…see those admins run run run

Thanks for the comment!
