    Hi 

    Is it possible to change de password the admin user for SSH access in version 14.2?

    I didn't, find any documentation for this.

    Thanks.

    Ivan,
    SSH or open a console window.  Run impcfg, choose --> platform --> users, then type admin.  This will bring up this screen where you can manage the admin user.

    Hi Paul 

    I can't do this, 

    It shows me Error: Managing user 'admin' is not allowed as it is an internal system account,



    Thanks.

    Ivan,
    You can use 'passwd admin' to change the password.  This will allow for weaker and reused passwords, so be sure you make it a strong one.
