Create an Initial Administrator User Account
The first time you access Tenable Core + Nessus, you log in as a wizard user.
Then, you create an initial administrator account.
Tip: If you delay creating an initial administrator account, after a few minutes, the system locks you out of the wizard user account. Reboot Tenable Core to proceed with the initial administrator account creation.
Before you begin:
- Deploy or install Tenable Core + Nessus, as described in Deploy or Install Tenable Core.
To create an initial administrator user account:
Navigate to the URL for your Tenable Core virtual machine.
The login page appears.
- In the User name field, type wizard.
- In the Password field, type admin.
Click Log In.
The Create New Administrator window appears.
- In the Username field, type the username you want to use for your administrator account.
In the Password field, type a new password for your administrator account.
Click Create Account.
A confirmation window appears.
Click Finish Setup.
Tenable Core creates your user account.
Click Log Out.
Tenable Core logs you out.
