Q&A: Are There Special Requirements When Changing The Domain Administrator's Password?


Are there any special requirements when changing the domain administrator’s password?


No, there are no special requirements.

When changing the password of the domain administrator this does not change the password of the local “root” user on your UCS servers. For this, use the command passwd as root on the console of the servers.

Option 1

Use Univention Management Console (UMC) web frontend to change the password for Administrator.

Option 2

Use Univention Directory Manager (udm) on the command line.
udm users/user modify --dn uid=Administrator,cn=users,dc=multi,dc=ucs --set password=abcdetest123
