Changing passwords for the vRealize suite via vRSLCM (vRealize Suite Lifecycle Manager)

In this guide i will go over one of the Locker feature in vRealize Lifecycle Manager specifically the password management.

As a reminder vRSLCM can manage the following:

Type of Password ChangevRealize Product Name
Admin Password ChangevRealize Automation, vRealize Operations Manager, vRealize Network Insight, vRealize Log Insight, VMware Identity Manager
Root Password ChangevRealize Automation, vRealize Operations Manager, vRealize Network Insight, vRealize Log Insight, VMware Identity Manager
Support Password ChangevRealize Network Insight
Console User Password ChangevRealize Network Insight
SSH User Password ChangeVMware Identity Manager

The first step is to create a new password. We can do so by going to Locker from the welcome screen or the menu on top right

Once in Locker, we can check to see where a specific password might be used. In my case i had just deployed most of the vRealize products and i used in the InstallerPassword reference

Once we clicked on InstallerPassword we can see some details about the password. Click on References to see where the password is used

Next we can go back a level by clicking on password and click add to add a new password to the inventory

Complete the required fields and click add

Now that we have the password created we can go to the Lifecycle Operations service to update the password for the vRealize products. Click on the Menu on the top right and select lifecycle operations

Go to environments and click on view details on the environment where we want to update the password. In my case i will update my vRealize environment

Im going to update my vROPS instance. On the menu under the product select the node on the left side and click on change password towards the right

On the next screen we need to pick the current password for the environment and the new password that were changing to

Lifecycle manager went though and updated the password and its associations

Trying to log in using the root user confirms that the password has been changed
