KB061220121342 - How do I log into my WES device as an administrator?

Issue

I want to be able to log on to my WES device as an administrator to make some changes.


Cause

The WES system has two logon systems.

  • USER Logon
  • ADMIN Logon

The USER logon is automatic unless the device is connected to a Domain in which case this is irrelevant as you will be shown a logon prompt.

Solution

By default, the Itona (WES) 7 automatically logs in using a pre-defined ‘User’ login. This login provides a very limited and locked down desktop.

In order to perform setting changes on the terminal you will need to log in as the Administrator.

To do this you can choose either of two methods:

Method 1:

  1. Let the terminal log in under user mode.
  2. Log off and keep the SHIFT key pressed down during log off and Subsequent log in.
  3. You will now see a login prompt.
  4. Log in using the name Administrator.
  5. Enter the password. The default password is Administrator.

Method 2:

  1. While the terminal is booting and displaying the (WES) 7 Splash screen, Keep the SHIFT key pressed down.
  2. You will now see a login prompt.
  3. Log in using the name Administrator.
  4. Enter the password. The default is Administrator.
