How to change de password to cimom_administrator using command view vls

We have VLS 12000.
Using command view vls, we can not to change the password for cimom_administrator.
This user and password are used when we are trying to setup VLS Smart Copy with VLS12000 and Data Protector 6.11.
The documentation says that we must be use the cimom_administrator login, but we don´t know that password. We are using firmware 3.4.0 with deduplication on the VLS.

SMI-S support
SMI-S support allows applications attached to the VLS to detect the virtual library configuration and to
allow some users to change the state of the VLS.
To protect access to the VLS via the SMI-S agent, and to allow a higher level of security for the device,
there are two access categories:
â ¢ Read-only access allows you to view SMI-S objects but not change them. This is used by 3rd
party monitoring products, ISEE, and other components that need visibilty but not control of
the VLS configuration.
â ¢ Read and write access allows complete control of the device including the ability to reboot,
move tapes, change port map settings, etc.
CAUTION:
Because of its destructive potential, this functionality should be strictly controlled.
To disable an SMI-S user:
1. From the Notifications tab task bar, select Get SMI-S users.
The SMI-S Users screen displays listing Read Only Users and Read Write Users.
2. Under the userâ s name, select disable.
The SMIS-Users screen refreshes and displays the message â The [Read Write or Read Only] User
was successfully disabledâ . The disable button for that user is replaced by the enable button.
To enable a user:
1. From the Notifications tab task bar, select Get SMI-S users.
The SMI-S Users screen displays listing Read Only Users and Read Write Users.
2. Under the userâ s name, select enable.
The SMIS-Users screen refreshes and displays the message â The [Read Write or Read Only] User
was successfully enabledâ . The enable button for that user is replaced by the disable button.
To change a userâ s password:
1. From the Notifications tab task bar, select Get SMI-S users.
The SMI-S Users screen displays listing Read Only Users and Read Write Users.
2. Under the appropriate userâ s name, select change password.
The change password screen displays.
3. Enter the new password for the user in both fields.
4. Select Submit.
The SMIS-Users screen refreshes and displays the message â The [Read Write or Read Only] Userâ s
password was successfully changedâ .
NOTE:
Viewing and managing users with SMI-S access is the only SMI-S-associated functionality on the VLS
itself. The benefits of SMI-S are evident on applications attached to the VLS.

does that help? not sure if it is the same with current fw, but it come form the user manual
