Change primary server credentials

If you use role-based administration:

For more information, see Managing roles and sub-estates.

To change the primary server credentials:

  1. In the Policies pane, double-click Updating. Then double-click the updating policy you want to change.
  2. In the Updating Policy dialog box, on the Primary Server tab, enter new credentials that will be used to access the server. Change other details, if appropriate.
    Note: If your primary update source is a folder on your website and you are using Internet Information Services (IIS) with anonymous authentication, you will still need to enter credentials on the Primary Server tab. Use the credentials for the "initial install source" UNC share, even if you don't need them to access the webserver. If you leave the Username and Password fields on the Primary Server tab blank, you will not be able to protect endpoint computers from the console.
  3. In the Groups pane, select a group that uses the updating policy you just changed. Right-click and select Comply with, Group updating policy.
    Repeat this step for each group that uses this updating policy.
