Changing Passwords

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 Orchestrator.

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

  1. Log in to the Orchestrator UI as an Orchestrator Administrator. For more information, see Accessing Orchestrator UI.
  2. Switch to the Administration page.
  3. Navigate to Scope Inclusions > Credentials.
  4. In the Credentials column, select a credential that you want to modify, and click Edit.
  5. In the Edit Orchestrator 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.
