Editing Administrator Accounts
For information on deleting administrator accounts, see Adding, Editing, Copying, and Deleting Objects in AMC
To help keep your AMC password secure, you should change it from time to time. Each administrator can edit his
or her own account to change the password or update the description. The primary AMC administrator (whose
username is admin) can edit the account settings for any other administrator.
Your password must contain between eight and 20 characters, and is case-sensitive. A strong password—with a
combination of uppercase and lowercase letters, and numbers—is recommended. You should also avoid using
words found in a dictionary.
After you change your password, record it somewhere and keep it secure. If you change a secondary
administrator’s password, be sure to share the password with the appropriate administrator.
To edit an administrator account
In the AMC, navigate to System Configuration > General Settings.
On the General Settings page, in the Administrator accounts section, click Edit.
In the Name column on the Administrators page, click the name of the administrator you want to edit .
If the password for the primary administrator (whose username is admin) is changed,
the password for logging in to the appliance directly (as root) is also changed.
The username and role of the primary or legacy local administrator cannot be changed.
On the Edit Administrator page, change the role of selected administrators.
