Changing Instance Passwords

On the DCS console, you can change the password required for accessing your DCS instance.


  • You cannot change the password of a DCS instance in password-free mode.

  • The DCS instance for which you want to change the password is in the Running state.

  • The new password takes effect immediately on the server without requiring a restart. The client must reconnect to the server using the new password after a pconnect connection is closed. (The old password can still be used before disconnection.)


At least one DCS instance has been created.


  1. Log in to the DCS console.

  2. Click image1 in the upper left corner and select a region and a project.

  3. In the navigation pane, choose Cache Manager.

  4. Choose More > Change Password in the same row as the chosen instance.

  5. In the displayed dialog box, set Old Password, New Password, and Confirm Password.


    After 5 consecutive incorrect password attempts, the account for accessing the chosen DCS instance will be locked for 5 minutes. Passwords cannot be changed during the lockout period.

    The password must meet the following requirements:

    • Cannot be left blank.

    • The new password cannot be the same as the old password.

    • Can contain 8 to 32 characters.

    • Must contain at least three of the following character types:

      • Lowercase letters

      • Uppercase letters

      • Digits

      • Special characters (`~!@#$^&*()-_=+\|{},<.>/?)

  6. In the Change Password dialog box, click OK to confirm the password change.
