Step 1: Ensure you have prerequisites set up for your web server and hosts, as per this forum post (Once off process) Step 2: Add new Password Record configured as follows: Screen 1: Ensure you configure the below 5 options correctly and enter in the password for the account. If you configure an Expiry Date it will automatically change the password in Passwordstate and on the Host when that date is reached. Screen 2: Ensure you select the appropriate Privileged Account and the Reset Windows Password reset script. Also confirm the Password Reset Schedule is enabled if you want the password to automatically change when the Expiry Date occurs Screen 3: Confirm the Validate Password for Windows Account validation script is selected
Greetings, I am tearing my hair out over this issue. I have copied the example of how this works, here. The errant line is "Set-VMHostAccount -UserAccount $UserName -Password $NewPassword" The error is that the UserAccount value cannot be found. The line works when run directly in PowerShell on the server. So at least it should work. It doesn't matter if the line is updated to have 'root' in place of the $UserName. It doesn't matter if there are only 3 lines in the script (the connect, the error, the disconnect) Any pointers would be much appreciated. Irish
Step 1: Ensure you have prerequisites set up for your web server and hosts, as per this forum post (Once off process) Step 2: Add new Password Record configured as follows: Screen 1: Ensure you configure the below 5 options correctly and enter in the password for the account. If you configure an Expiry Date it will automatically change the password when that date is reached. Screen 2: Confirm the Reset Dell iDRAC Account Password reset script is selected Determine whether or not to use a Privileged Account and select the appropriate option. If you do not use a Privileged Account, Passwordstate will connect to the host using the currently active password for the user (in this example marlee), and perform the reset. Otherwise it will connect to the host with the Privileged Account username and password, and then perform the reset for the user account (marlee) Confirm the Password Reset Schedule is enabled if you want the password to automatically change when the Expiry Date occurs. Screen 3: Confirm the Validate Password for Dell iDRAC Account validation script is selected
To enable Passwordstate to reset passwords for accounts on remote hosts in your environment, you must ensure you have the following prerequisites set up: Web server and remote host requirements - https://www.clickstudios.com.au/downloads/version9/Passwordstate_Privileged_Account_Management_Manual.pdf In the Passwordstate user interface: Hosts need to be added in under the Hosts tab -> Hosts Home -> View All Hosts Records screen Some systems require a Privileged Account to perform the password reset on the remote host. To determine if you need to set up a Privileged Account, check Section 7 of this guide: https://www.clickstudios.com.au/downloads/version9/Passwordstate_Privileged_Account_Management_Manual.pdf A Password List that is configured for Password Resets (Screenshot below of this setting when creating or editing a Password List) Quick Information About Privileged Accounts: After creating a privileged account, for security reasons only the person who created it is granted access to use it. If you find you create a Password Record, but cannot see the Privileged Account that you thought was already in the system, go back into the Administration -> Privileged Account screen and confirm you have access to it (any any other user in Passwordstate that you need) Screenshot below shows where this can be configured:
