About this task

The storage system’s root account is mapped to the "naroot" account name of the remote management device. If you disable the root account's access to the storage system, the naroot access to the storage system is automatically disabled.

    options security.passwd.rootaccess.enable off

    The default is on.

    Note: To reset the security.passwd.rootaccess.enable option to on to enable root access, a user other than root must first change the root account's password.
