Change Your Password

Users authenticated against GigaVUE‑FM’s local user database can always change their own passwords. The Password can be a minimum of 8 characters and a maximum of 64 characters, and must comply with the character requirements specified below:

■   One numerical character
■   One uppercase character
■   One lowercase character
■   One special character (!, @, #, and so on)
  • The Change Your Password link is available only for locally authenticated users, and will be unavailable for users authenticated against external authentication servers.
  • Externally authenticated users can change their admin password as follows:
    • Use the fmctl command.
    • Change the authentication method to 'Local' and change the password.

The following are the steps for changing your password:

1.   Click on the button in the upper right-hand corner of GigaVUE‑FM, where your user name is displayed, and select Change Password.


The Change Password page displays.


2. On the Change Password page, do the following:
o   Enter your current password in the Current Password field.
o   Enter the new password in the New Password and Confirm Password fields.
3. Click Save.

GigaVUE‑FM logs out to reset the password. Enter your new password to log in again.

Note:  Use the sudo passwd admin command to change the GigaVUE-FM Shell password.
