Changing user passwords using HDvM - SN

System Administrator Guide for Virtual Storage Platform E Series

Part Number
Security administrators with the View & Modify role can change the password of Device Manager - Storage Navigator (HDvM - SN) users using HDvM - SN.
Tip: If the user has a local user account for the authentication server, the security administrator can use the authentication server, if desired, to change the user's password. After the password is changed, the user can use the new password both on the authentication server and in HDvM - SN.
  • When using management software (for example, Ops Center, Hitachi Command Suite), you might need to change the password information registered in the software. For details, see the documentation for the software product.
  • Do not use HDvM - SN to operate on user accounts that are used for communication with the storage systems registered in the Storage Device List window. Use maintenance utility to change passwords for such users.
  • If you change the password of a user who is currently logged in to HDvM - SN, the user must log out and then log back in using the new password to continue operations.
  • You must have the Security Administrator (View & Modify) role to perform this task.
  • The target user must have a local user account for HDvM - SN.
  1. In the HDvM - SN Administration tree, select User Groups.
  2. On the User Groups tab, select the user group to which the user belongs.
  3. On the User tab, select the user whose password you want to change, and then click Change Password.
  4. In the Change Password dialog box, specify the new password for the user in the two password fields, and then click Finish.
  5. In the Confirm window, check the settings and enter a task name in Task Name or accept the default name.
    If you want the Tasks window to open automatically after you click Apply, make sure Go to tasks window for status is checked.
  6. Click Apply.
    The task is now registered. If Go to tasks window for status was checked, the Tasks window now opens.
