In a sync-failover device group, upon adding a chassis for the first time and pushing the configuration to it, its secondary blades will have an mcpd restart. This error message will be logged: 01071488:3: Remote transaction for device group [name to commit id [...] failed with error 010718e7:3: The requested primary admin user (admin) must have a password set..
