HI, 

Is it advisable to disable Nutanix Prism Admin account after creating local user accounts with “User Admin” rights. 

The purpose of this question is to increase the security level of access.

Please advise.

Thanks in Advance.

Best,

Shan

Hi Shanmugavadivel, 

You can’t and must not delete the admin account, I understand that the admin user can be a potential security risk however the account is a built-in user that can’t be deleted nor disabled since it has a critical part of administrating the cluster. 

The best practice is to set a complicated password for the account and give it only to authorized people in your organization.
