Updating Password for Workgroup or Untrusted Computers

Updated: April 21, 2010

Applies To: System Center Data Protection Manager 2010

When you install an agent locally on a workgroup computer, you specify the credentials to SetDpmServer to generate a local account and DPM uses these credentials to communicate with the agent on the workgroup computer.

Procedure to update password

Follow these steps to update the password for the user account being used for workgroup computer protection.

  1. On the protected computer, SetDpmServer.exe -dpmServerName <serverName> -isNonDomainServer -updatePassword

    ImportantImportant
    You must use the same naming convention (FQDN or NetBIOS) as you did when configuring protection.

  2. On the DPM server, run the Update-NonDomainServerInfo cmdlet and provide appropriate information along with new password.

  3. Refresh the agent information for the protected computer.

Examples

Example 1

Changing the password when the computer was protected using NetBIOS name.

On the protected computer, run SetDpmServer.exe -dpmServerName Server01 -isNonDomainServer –UpdatePassword

On the DPM server, run Update-NonDomainServerInfo –PSName Finance01 –dpmServerName Server01.

When prompted, provide the same password as the one you provided in Step 1.

Example 2

Changing the password when the computer was protected using FQDN.

On the protected computer, run SetDpmServer.exe -dpmServerName Server01.corp.contoso.com -isNonDomainServer -UpdatePassword

On the DPM server, run Update-NonDomainServerInfo –PSName Finance01.worlwideimporters.com –dpmServerName Server01.contoso.com.

When prompted, provide the same password as the one you provided in Step 1.
