SMB - local users - What is admin password?

What is the SMB app admin default password? For a new install?

 

I've tired blank, admin, and netgear's Frontview password. Nothing worked.

 

To reset the smb password I found the thread below worked. In Frontview retype/reset the system admin password. I'm curious why the admin password didn't work the first time.

The top one is the admin group, the bottom one is the admin user. The hint there is the graphics - the top one shows multiple people, the bottom only has one person.

 

By default only the admin user is in the admin group.  But you can create other administive accounts (putting them in the admin group).

 

There is only one admin account, so the NAS admin account credentials used by the web ui should have worked with SMB.

Thanks for the graphics explaination. Learning as I go here. I've connected as admin couple times now using the same credentials used by the web ui.

 

For some reason only the admin group was displayed initially. The admin user showed up after resetting the password on the nas.
