When you configure the root password of the Orchestrator Appliance, you must comply with the predefined password requirements.

The root password that you define when you deploy the Orchestrator Appliance from an OVF template must contain at least eight characters.

When you change a local user password from Control Center, the new password is not accepted, unless it meets all requirements.

  • The password must be at least eight characters long.

  • The password must contain at least one digit.

  • The password must contain at least one uppercase letter.

  • The password must contain at least one lowercase letter.

  • The password must contain at least one special character.

Note:

Non-ASCII or extended ASCII characters are not supported. Such characters might be accepted when you define the password, but cause failures during save operations and when joining an Orchestrator node to a cluster.
