  • 1.  Content Library password reset

    Posted Mar 28, 2022 12:44 PM

    Hello

    If I create a Content Library and set "enable publishing" and subsequently "enable authentication", there's a password requested and set (which is needed when subscribing to the CL - and also when changing the CL's configuration).

    There seems to be a "hidden" user name "vcsp" involved, but this user/password is not integrated into vCenter, SSO or something. So even if I'm a vSphere admin with highest global permissions, I can't see/change/remove this CL password...?

    Where is this stored? How can I get access to CLs that have been created by someone and the password is unknown? The "eye" icon in vSphere Client is useless btw - it shows "dummyP@ssw0rd" but not the actual password.

    Did you ever figure this out?  I am having the same issue.  I have a content library published and I am trying to unpublish and I have no idea what the password was set too.  I tried my normal admin password and that doesn't work, so I am at a loss.
