How to change the admin password on CDOT 8.3?


With Powershell, is there a way to change admin password on multi CDOT 8.3 filers?  I've tried googling but I have found no answer so far.


thanks for your help in advance.



Have you tried the Set-NcUserPassword cmdlet?


Get-NcUser admin | Set-NcUserPassword -Password something_SECURE!


Don't authenticate your PowerShell session using the admin user if you're changing the admin will cause some errors after the command is executed.

This command seems to work, but because there are 5 different applications (http,ssh,ontapi,sp,console), it tries to change the pw 5 times, instead of just once. The command will runm, then error out 4 subsequent times.
