  1. Run system-view

    The system view is displayed.

  2. Run set boot password slot slot-id

    The BootROM menu password is set for the main control board based on the slot ID.

    • When you log in to the Ctrl+B menu for the first time, you are required to set a password. If the password is not set, the Ctrl+B menu cannot be accessed.
    • After the device is upgraded, the password of the Ctrl+B menu before the upgrade is still valid. You are advised to change the password after the upgrade.
    • The password must be a string of eight or more characters that contain at least two of the following: uppercase letters, lowercase letters, digits, and special characters.
    • You can press Ctrl+R to restore the factory settings and clear the password configured by a user.
