Create a security connector password

After you deploy the security connector and launch it from the VMware console or Hyper-V Manager, you are prompted to create a password. This password is required to access the security connector and the Web Console.

The password must contain:

  • Between 8 and 32 characters
  • At least one uppercase and one lowercase letter
  • At least one numeric character

You cannot reuse the last five passwords. These password requirements apply to Security Connector 3.2 or later.

To create a security connector password:

  1. If you deployed Security Connector on VMware ESXi or Microsoft Hyper-V, complete these steps to access Security Connector:

    1. Log in to VMware or Hyper-V.
    2. Navigate to the VM you created.
    3. Open the Console or the remote connection for the VM. After you connect to Security Connector, you're prompted to create a password.
  2. If you deployed Security Connector on Amazon Web Services (AWS) and Microsoft Azure, in your command line or terminal, enter this command:

    ssh -i </path/to/ssh/key> admin@<public-or-elastic_IP>


  3. Enter a password for the security connector and press Enter. You're prompted to reenter the password.

  4. Enter the password again, and press Enter.

  5. After the password is successfully set, you can press any key to return to the main menu.
