Hi Team,

We have multiple Nutanix clusters with Dell XC servers installed with ESXI servers. We found an user account "PTAdmin" present in Dell iDRAC servers. Is there anyway to disable the account from CVM or Hypervisor since we have 100+ nodes in the infra.

You can leverage ipmitool. Please follow this KB-1486 [ESXi] How to re-configure IPMI using ipmitool

Please let me know how you go.

@Shanmugavadivel Mahali I would also consult Dell support before deleting any user in XC servers, as PTAdmin “may” be a default user that assists with firmware upgrades in dell XC series.
