For security reasons, you can change passwords for the SDDC Manager root (root) and super user (vcf) accounts. Changing these passwords periodically or when certain events occur, such as an administrator leaving your organization, reduces the likelihood of security vulnerabilities.
- SSH in to the SDDC Manager VM using the vcf user account.
- Enter su to switch to the root user.
- Enter one of the following commands:
To change the super user password.
To change the root password.
- Enter and retype the new password. For example:
root@sddc-manager [ /home/vcf ]# passwd vcf New password: Retype new password: passwd: password updated successfully
