Internal systems in StruxureWare


StruxureWare uses a customized version of Linux. Older systems ran Fedora Core while the newest versions run Centos. As with any Linux systems a super user or root user has full access to the internal systems and processes.


Because the system is customized, APC and Schneider Electric do not allow customers access to the back end of the system. StruxureWare Data Center Expert is an appliance and should be considered a "black box" or closed system. We do not provide the root password for these systems.
