You can change or reissue passwords for other users by using Device Manager - Storage Navigator.

When using Hitachi Command Suite, you need to change information, such as passwords, registered in Hitachi Command Suite. For details, see the section describing how to change storage system settings in the Hitachi Command Suite User Guide.
Before changing the password of a user account specified by the registered storage system in the Storage Device List window, click Stop Service for the registered storage system. After changing the password of the user account, click Edit and set the new password, then click Start Service for the storage system.
  • Security administrators with View & Modify roles can change user passwords on Device Manager - Storage Navigator.
  • If the target user has a local user account for Device Manager - Storage Navigator, the security administrator can use Device Manager - Storage Navigator to change the target user's password.
  • If the target user has a local user account for the authentication server, the security administrator can use the authentication server to change the target user's password. After the password is changed, the target user can use the new password on both the authentication server and Device Manager - Storage Navigator.
