CMS Password Change

CMS Password Change

CMS Password Change

Can someone tell me where the mechanism is in a CMS login to change the password.  I know my current login and password and I can get in and out just fine.  The help file tell me what the procedure is for changing password, but does not tell me where to find a menu pick or any way to bring up the dialog box.  Anybody know where it is?

RE: CMS Password Change

The CMS admin will need to delete your password on the CMS server.  There is not a way to change an existing password on the CMS Supervisor client (afaik).

RE: CMS Password Change

Thanks, I think.  CMS help file describes the process for changing the password.  It that a bogus entry.

Beyond that, I am the CMS admin person.  Do you know process for resetting a user's password?

RE: CMS Password Change

Log into the CMS console as root.
At the # command, enter the following:
# passwd -d username

Where username is the CMS logon ID you need to change.  The -d switch will delete the existing password.  When the user signs in, they (you) will be prompted to create a new password.  This is the screen that CMS refers to in their (bogus) change password documentation.
