Disable built in Administrator account in ESMC (or 2fa?)

Recommended Posts


We've enabled 2FA for all our technicians ESMC accounts but we don't appear to be able to disable the built in administrator account or at least enable 2FA on this.

Other than setting a really strong password on that account is there any other options? 

It defeats the purpose of enabling 2FA for all except the admin which has full access (Can't reduce those permissions either).

Hello. You are indeed correct. We will enable the option to protect the native Administrator account with 2FA in the version 7.1. As of now, the only recommended approach is to set a strong password, and keep it as "backup" restore password.
