Changing OnCommand Insight internal user passwords

Security policies might require you to change the passwords in your OnCommand Insight environment. Some of the passwords on one server exist on a different server in the environment, requiring that you change the password on both servers. For example, when you change the “inventory” user password on the Insight Server you must match the “inventory” user password on the Data Warehouse server Connector configured for that Insight Server.

Before you begin

Warning: You should understand the dependencies of the user accounts before you change passwords. Failing to update passwords on all required servers will result in communication failures between the Insight components.
