Change Onboard Administrator (OA) administrator password

A question from Kevin:




What is the impact if we change the password for the account used to connect to the OA in OneView ?

I have not seen in the UI a way to change the user or password to access the enclosures.




Reply from Toran:




Hi Kevin,


HP OneView (OV) will lose the ability to manage the enclosure if the credentials change out from under.  There should be an alert requesting a refresh and ultimately the user will be prompted for admin creds to reconfigure the account (i.e. update creds). 


OV is using the vcmuser account for ongoing management, which is hidden in the UI but visible in the CLI.   OV creates a password of max length, using a random char generator.
