vcmuser on the Onboard Administrator module

Hiro had a question about the "vcmuser" role:

 

*********************

 

My customer recently bought and configured 2 c7000 enclosures with VC Flex-10.

He asks me about vcmuser.

He says vcmuser is added on the OA of one enclosure but not on the OA of another enclosure.

What is the role of vcmuser and when is the user added on the OA?

Why vcmuser exists on the OA of one enclosure but not on the OA of another enclosure? 

 

Setup and Installation Guide says "Virtual Connect creates a local user named "vcmuser" on the OA module. Do not modify the credentials for this user. Do not change the "local users" authentication setting for the OA module."

Its made and used by Virtual Connet Support Utility (VCSU) only to check domain status etc; normally it would delete the user as well after doing the operation against the OA but if that process got terminated before VCSU officially ended then the vcmuser will still be there.
