Changing the OS User Password

Changing the OS User Password

The Windows, Linux OS provides a default user name and its initial password. To ensure account security, you need to change the initial password the first time you log in to the OS. Changing passwords periodically prevents theft of the passwords and unauthorized access.

Changing the Password of a Windows Operating System User

You are advised to change the initial password the first time you log in to the server that runs Windows. You need to periodically change the account password to prevent system passwords from being stolen and ensure system security.

Prerequisites

Log in to the eSight server as the Administrator user.

NOTE:

Log in to the server as the SWMaster user if the Windows is hardened.

Context

In the distributed environment, the ossuser user is used to manage the standby server. The default password is Changeme_123.

Procedure
  • Change the password for the Administrator user.
    1. Press Ctrl+Alt+Delete to lock the current login page.
    2. Click Change Password.
    3. In the displayed dialog box, enter Old password, New password, and Confirm New Password of the Administrator user.
  • Changing the password of the ossuser user
    1. Right-click Computer and choose Manage from the shortcut menu.
    2. On the Local Server page, select Computer Management from the TASKS drop-down list box at the upper right corner.
    3. On the Computer Management page, choose Local Users and Groups > Users.
    4. Right-click ossuser in the right pane and choose Set Password from the shortcut menu.
    5. In the Set Password for ossuser page, click Proceed.
    6. Set New password and Confirm password, and click OK.

      After changing the password of the ossuser user in a distributed environment, you must modify the server connection information to ensure proper communication between the server and maintenance tool.

      1. Log in to the maintenance tool as the sys user.
      2. Choose System > Server Management from the main menu
      3. Click in the operation column of the target server.
      4. In the Modify Server Connection Information dialog box, modify the server connection information.
      5. Click OK.

Changing the Password of a Linux Operating System User

You are advised to change the initial password the first time you log in to the server that runs Linux. Periodically changing the user password of the Linux operating system improves user information security.

Prerequisites
  • To change the root user password, log in to the server as the root user.
NOTE:

If the Linux operating system is hardened, you need to remotely log in to the server as the ossuser and switch to the root user.

  • To change a common user's password, log in to the server using the common user's account.
Context
NOTE:
  • Due to the restrictions of the Linux operating system, no matter whether the operating system is hardened, no complexity restrictions will apply when you change your own password or a common user password as the root user. However, to ensure system security, ensure that a new user password after password change meets the complexity requirements.
  • The device-related passwords must meet complexity requirements of the eSight and devices.
Procedure
  1. Run the following command to change the password for logging in to the Linux operating system:

    passwd

  2. Enter a new password and confirm the new password as prompted.

    After changing the password of the ossuser user in a distributed environment, you must modify the server connection information to ensure proper communication between the server and maintenance tool.

    1. Log in to the maintenance tool as the sys user.
    2. Choose System > Server Management from the main menu
    3. Click in the operation column of the target server.
    4. In the Modify Server Connection Information dialog box, modify the server connection information.
    5. Click OK.
