Change Server Password

Sorry for the stupid question, but I have a disgruntled employee that just
left and I am locking down the servers I have here. I need to change the
admin password for NW and I know I can do that via C1, but I also remember
there is another place it's stored on the server.

Just want to make sure all my bases are covered, sort of in a stressful
situation and having trouble remembering all I need to do.

Thanks

It is unfortunately stored with all apps where you have provided it. Hence
you should use a separate id for things like backup, AV and such. Are you
referring to the NetStorage admin?

Re: Change Server Password

I use the same to access AV and ArcServe (backup) which I know how to
change.

I just remember once getting some help and a technician opened up a file via
the console and it listed my admin user and password.

Just changing the password for Admin in C1 won't affect those things,
correct?

I doubt he has any idea how to access Netware even, but I'd like to change
it all the same.

Not stored credentials no.

And yes, changing the admin password is probably prudent.
