This guide begins from the point that you have installed QuantaStor and have successfully logged into QuantaStor Manager. If you have not yet installed QuantaStor on your server, please see the Installation Guide for more details.

First Time Login

The default administrator user name for your storage system is simply 'admin'. This user account is present on all QuantaStor systems. At the login dialog the admin user account name is pre-populated as this is the most commonly used login. If QuantaStor was installed for you by a CSP or VAR the password for the system(s) should have been emailed to you or made available via the CSPs server management panel. If you've installed QuantaStor on a new server or VM the 'admin' account defaults to having a password of 'password' (without the single quotes). IMPORTANT: Please change this immediately after you first login via the Users & Groups section.

Change Administrator Password

Change the Administrator's Password.

For security, you will want to create a secure password for your storage system. This can be completed quickly using the Change Admin Password button in the Manager, but also can be achieved via the Set Password button in the toolbar under "Users & Groups".


For more information on the password, refer to the User Set Password page.

Step by Step Configuration Procedure

With your first login, a dialog will give you step by step guidance to set up your desired Storage System. An overview of Getting Started.
