Areca RAID Controller set password

without comments

There is cli64 tool which allow you to set different parameters, but don’t expect your first experience with that tool to be easy.

CLI> sys showcfg
GuiErrMsg<0x08>: Password Required.

Usually nobody knows it. You may find default user/pass for this card is admin/0000 but you still have to enter it somewhere. Let me show you the trick:

set password=0000
GuiErrMsg<0x00>: Success.

Now you’re fine! Note, you don’t need user name ever.

CLI> sys info
