2.2 Disable/Modify Default Accts - 'alternate admin account has been created (root)'

Information

The root account needs to be disabled in order to meet many, if not all, of the GRC standards. You will need to create a new administrative account prior to disabling root. Other functions that use this account such as NDMP and ndmpcopy might be affected. It will be necessary to use a different account for these functions.

NOTE: Nessus has not performed this check. Please review the benchmark to ensure target compliance.

Solution

Create an alternate account to replace root
