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 Configuration > Cluster Peers.
  2. Select the peered cluster, and click Modify Passphrase.
  3. In the Modify Passphrase dialog box, enter a new passphrase, and then click Modify.
    Note: The minimum required length of the passphrase is eight characters.
  4. Log in to the remote cluster, and perform steps 1 through 3 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.
