About this task

Keep these guidelines in mind when choosing a password:

Note: Changing the password in System Manager also changes it in the command line interface (CLI). In addition, password changes cause the user's active session to terminate.


  1. Select Settings > Access Management.
  2. Select the Local User Roles tab.
  3. Select a user from the table.
    The Change Password button becomes available.
  4. Select Change Password.
    The Change Password dialog box opens.
  5. If no minimum password length is set for local user passwords, you can check the box to require the selected user to enter a password to access the storage array, and then you can type the new password for the selected user.
  6. Enter your local administrator password, and then click Change.


If the user is currently logged in, the password change causes the user's active session to terminate.
