For security reasons, you can change passwords for the built-in accounts that are used by your Cloud Foundation system. Changing these passwords periodically or when certain events occur, such as an administrator leaving your organization, reduces the likelihood of security vulnerabilities occurring.

You had specified passwords for the Cloud Foundation system built-in accounts in the deployment parameters sheet before bring-up. You can modify the passwords for these accounts using RESTful API calls.


The NSX cluster controller password is hardcoded in the system. It is strongly recommended that you look it up and update it. See #GUID-AD195D27-5298-4FDC-A27C-5A4F3185F6FB and #GUID-6A8AEEB1-4920-4512-B039-372F75C374F3.
