Change an Operations Console Administrator's Password

An Operations Console administrator is a user with permissions to perform administrative tasks in the Operations Console and to run some command line utilities. You can edit an Operations Console administrator’s password in the Security Console.

Any Super Admin can change an Operations Console administrator password in the Security Console. You cannot recover a lost Operations Console administrator password, but a Super Admin can create a new one.

Before you begin

You must be a Super Admin.


  1. In the Security Console, click Administration > Manage OC Administrators.

  2. Next to the Operations Console administrator whose password you wish to modify, click Change Password.

  3. In the Create New Password field, enter the Operations Console administrator’s new password.

    The password must be between 8 and 32 characters, contain at least 1 alphabetic character, at least 1 special character, and may only contain characters in the basic ASCII character set, excluding space, @, and ~. The password may not match the corresponding user ID.

  4. In the Confirm New Password field, reenter the new password.

  5. Click Save.

Note: It can take from fifteen to thirty minutes for changes to an Operations Console administrator’s account to replicate to a replica instance.
