Resolving expired or invalid stored credentials for a chassis

When a stored credential becomes expired or inoperable on a device, the status for that device is shown as "Offline."


To resolve an expired or invalid stored credential for a chassis.

  1. From the Lenovo XClarity Administrator menu bar, click Hardware > Chassis. The Chassis page is displayed with a tabular view of all managed chassis.
  2. Click the Power column header to group all offline chassis at the top of the table.

    You can sort the table columns to make it easier to find the chassis that you want to manage. In addition, you can enter text (such as a chassis name or IP address) in the Filter field to further filter the chassis that are displayed.

    Illustrates the list of managed chassis in the Chassis page.
  3. Select the chassis to be resolved.
  4. Click All Actions > Security > Edit Stored Credentials.
  5. Change the password for the stored credential or select another stored credential to use for the managed device.
    Note: If you managed more than one device using the same stored credentials and you change the password for the stored credentials, that password change affects all devices that are currently using the stored credentials.
