Issue entering passwords containing special characters
In English-language operating systems, using a password that contains special characters with the
smiscommand does not work in a Windows environment. This issue has not been tested with non-English operating systems.
In Windows, the following characters, plus any spaces, are considered special characters and cause password input to fail if the password is not enclosed in quotation marks:
, & ' < > ; | = ^ "
If a password contains spaces or special characters, enclose it in double quotes (" ") when you use it in the
smiscommand. Note that the quote character (") is a special character and should never be used in your password.
