Setting a System Password

    Last Modified: August 30, 2018

    Complete the following steps to set a system password.


    The default username for the cRIO-904x is admin. There is no default password for the cRIO-904x, so you must leave the password field blank when logging in until you set a system password.

    1. Right-click your system and select Web Configuration. The NI Web-Based Configuration and Monitoring utility opens in your default browser and is where you set the password. If you have not installed Microsoft Silverlight, NI Web-based Configuration & Monitoring prompts you to do so.
    2. Enter a unique name for your system in the Hostname field and click Save to apply the changes. Click Refresh to restart the target for the changes to take effect.
    3. Click the Security Configuration icon.
    4. Click Login.
    5. In the Login dialog box, enter the username admin and leave the password field blank.
    6. Click OK.
    7. Click Change Password.
    8. Enter and re-enter a new password.
    9. Click OK.
    10. Click Save.
    11. Click OK to confirm you are changing the password.

      NI cannot recover lost system passwords. If you forget the password, you must contact NI and reformat the controller.

    12. Close the NI Web-Based Configuration and Monitoring utility.
