Modifying the cluster peer passphrase

For security reasons, you can modify the passphrase that is provided during cluster peer creation by using System Manager.

Steps

  1. Click the Configurations tab.
  2. In the Cluster Settings pane, click Cluster Peers.
  3. Select the peer cluster, and click Modify Passphrase.
  4. In the Modify Passphrase dialog box, enter the new passphrase, and then click Modify.
    Note: The minimum default length of the passphrase is eight characters.
  5. Log in to the remote cluster and perform steps 1 through 4 to modify the passphrase in the remote cluster.
    The authentication status for the local cluster is displayed as ok_and_offer until you modify the passphrase in the remote cluster.
