ThKThK Cybersecurity Overlord ✭✭✭

no advice is shown to change the password !

I look forward to have access also next week 🤔

    @ThK this is somewhat strange, did you checked the settings on the LocalDomain Domain (because it's the admin), is there a password expiration value set? This is also the place where the Allow password changes permission is located.

    @BWC okay thank you!,

    must have been the beginning of the escape to the home office - is that a standard value 730 days ?

    and why isn't it displayed in a meaningful way

    @ThK I checked on two SMAs and I believe 730 isn't a default value.

    UPDATE: I checked a newer installation and the default value was indeed 730 days. So I might have changed it on the other systems, or older systems which gut updated having a different default value.

    SMA is always a fountain of fun and you have to peek around to find all the coins.

    @BWC I'm just hopping the customer SMA and so far all have been set to 730 days, well, it doesn't matter.

    i´m glad to have logged on to the classic view. so the riddle could be solved

    Yes, another piece of the puzzle - wait for the next firmware , there is more to come ;-)
