    • BGP

    • Zebra—enter the pre-defined password zebra and press ENTER.

    The Adonis_hostname> prompt appears upon successful login, indicating you have access to the command line interface but do not yet have administrative privileges.

  4. Type enable and press ENTER.

    • BGP—re-enter your BGP CLI password and press ENTER. For more information on the default BGP CLI password, refer to BlueCat default login credentials (you must be authenticated to view this topic).
