I have changed the password for my NMC on my UPS. Do I need to update password for existing PCNS connections on my protected servers?

Hello,

    I have changed the password for my NMC on my UPS. Do I need to update password for existing PCNS connections on my protected servers to the same one? If I am not wrong

for initial connection it uses the 'username', 'password' and 'passphrase'.

    It seems that existing PCNS connections to the NMC are still fine after changing my NMC password.

Kind Regards,

Aaron

Hi aaronteh - you're correct. Today for AP9617/18/19 (all firmware versions) or AP9630/31 (v5.X) require only the same administrator username between PCNS and the NMC. Password can be different.
