Changing Passwords

In this article

    If you want to set a new password for an account, the default and preferred method is to change it in the Veeam Backup & Replication console. The new password will be synchronized automatically into VAO.

    You can also change a password for an account in the VAO UI. However, keep in mind that if you change a password in the VAO UI, the new password will not be synchronized into the Veeam Backup & Replication console.

    1. Log in to the VAO UI as a VAO Administrator. For more information, see Accessing VAO UI.
    2. Switch to the Administration page.
    3. Navigate to Plan Components > Credentials.
    4. In the Credentials column, select a credential that you want to modify, and click Edit.
    5. In the Edit VAO Credential window:
    1. [This step applies only if you try to change a password for credentials automatically retrieved from a connected Veeam Backup & Replication server]

    Select the Override password check box.

    1. In the Password field, enter a new password.
    2. Click Save.
