Security Center from the Admin menu. You should be able to set password for any users id.

This is the admin password I use to access all my servers, admin consoles, etc. I would think it would be hard coded somewhere or at least more to it then just changing it in the security center.

I can't remember if 8105 has this or not but you should be able to click the user name (Administrator) and a drop down allows you to change password. I'm not sure how else you could do this.

Are you using internal or external security. From the client administration console click on Application Settings / Security and it will tell you what your setting is. If it is INTERNAL then what BabakNYC is telling you to do should work. Additionally you should look under Reporting Servers / Remote Service and click on the EDASERVE node name and see if the Security is TRUSTED if it is then you will be able to change the password as BabakNYC has said and be able to go the the Reporting Server console without having to log in.

If you are still having issues then on the Reporting Server console under Access Control look under the Server Administrator role and see if Administrators is listed. If it isn't then right mouse click on it and click Register Group to register it.


Thank you for using Focal Point!
