Password required after hostname change   13 April 2022, 09:29

Hi,

I changed Hostname of my computer, and now it is asking for a password. I can't recall setting a password for that computer. I have a PIN set for screensaver, but that is about it.

How do I find out what password is to fix this issue?

Cheers

If you have both the management console (GUI) and monitoring service installed on the same computer, simply enter localhost as host name and a blank password. This should work unless you had set an access password earlier.
