Initial password in password state


Recommended Posts

I'm creating a windows Discovery job to search for "Windows Dependency Accounts".  The question I have is there's a spot where I"m being asked "When new accounts are discovered, set the initial password in Passwordstate to be".  I want to run the discovery but I do not want to reset the account.  It seems from this verbiages that on discovery it will reset the password being discovered.  Is this so? and if so is there a way around it from resetting an account?

With this type of discovery job, it does not reset the password upon discovery - as this would be very disruptive to services. This option is for initially setting the value of the password in Passwordstate, which will obviously be incorrect until the first reset occurs.

We hope this clarifies.
