Management Credentials

I got a question about the Management Credentials that are used for managing assets in Ops Center:

"If I change a set of credentials, does Ops Center propagate the changed credentials to all of the assets that use that set?"

The answer is yes.

To provide some additional explanation: each managed asset is linked to Management Credentials that are used to access it. You can have separate Management Credentials for every asset, or share one set for a group of assets that all have the same login credentials. If you change the credentials on the systems, you can edit the Management Credentials to make sure they match the new system creds. Any asset that's using that set of credentials will then automatically start using the new set.

The Feature Reference Guide has a section about Management Credentials that explains how to perform these procedures.

Comments:

Does Ops Center have any way to easily update/change passwords on systems, consoles, devices, etc...

I found something noting to use scripts via OC, but it linked to an old Sun site that no longer exists after the sale to Oracle.

I would think something as common as updating system accounts could easily be handled by OC by default.

Thanks

There isn't a way to update the credentials on multiple systems at once through Ops Center, no. For individual systems you can access the console through Ops Center and change the credentials manually, but there's currently no way to automate the process.

I'll pass along that you'd be interested in that as a feature, though.
