    The Delphix Engine uses a boot loader to select the underlying system image to run, along with associated options. Access to the console is controlled through the virtualization framework, which should be sufficient to secure the Delphix Engine. System users can configure a boot password if additional compliance regulations require a boot loader password on top of the access control provided by the virtualization framework.

    1. Log into the CLI as a system user.
    2. Switch to the service security context and execute the update command.
    delphix> service security
    delphix service security> update
    3.Set the bootPassword property. The password can be entered on a separate line to avoid echoing the contents.
    delphix service security update *> set bootPassword
    Enter bootPassword: ******
    4. Commit the change.
    delphix service security update *> commit
