Systems Management Question

Can I change the password of the konfig account?

06/27/2019 652 views

Our security folks are telling me to change the default konfig account password.

1. If I do that, will anything be affected other than console logon?

2. Must I make the change from the console?

Thanks much.

The konfig password is not configurable. Konfig is a console only account, and it's locked down to specific utilities created or vetted by KACE. If your security team still has concerns, please reach out to Support and provide us with details - referencing this post.
