Changing the password for ONTAP Cloud

ONTAP Cloud includes a cluster admin account. You can change the password for this account from Cloud Manager, if needed.

About this task

Important: You should not change the password for the admin account through System Manager or the CLI. The password will not be reflected in Cloud Manager. As a result, Cloud Manager cannot monitor the instance properly.


  1. From the working environment, click the menu icon, and then click Advanced > Set password.
  2. Enter the new password twice and then click Save.
    The new password must be different than one of the last six passwords that you used.
