Description (partial)

Customer attempts to log in via SSH or console as "rescue-user", however it prompts them for a password.

A fresh APIC that is set to standby without ever being a part of a fabric will allow a login of "rescue-user" with no password input.

Customer had an APIC that was previosly active in a fabric, and decided to remove it from that fabric and bring it up as a standby apic.
