Changing the umadmin password on Red Hat Enterprise Linux

For security reasons, you must change the default password for the Unified Manager umadmin user immediately after completing the installation process. If necessary, you can change the password again anytime later. On Red Hat Enterprise Linux, you can change the umadmin password with a Linux command.

Before you begin


  1. Log in as the root user to the Red Hat Enterprise Linux system on which Unified Manager is running.
  2. Change the umadmin password: passwd umadmin
    The system prompts you to enter a new password for the umadmin user.
    Note: If Unified Manager is installed in a Veritas Cluster Server (VCS) environment, you must change the umadmin password on both nodes of the VCS setup. The umadmin password for both nodes must be the same.
