    1. Log into your Account Center.
    2. Click on the blue ADMIN button associated to your Grid server.
    3. Click on Server Admin Password & SSH.


    4. Click on Change Password to change the password.


    5. Type in the new password in the New Password and Confirm Password sections. Be sure to use a strong password. 1706_passwordreqs


      The Account Center now enforces strong email passwords. The password requirements are shown to the right of the password entry fields, as seen above. Each criterion will turn green as it is met. Criteria shown in black have not yet been met.

    6. Click Save to finish.

The Save button will only be enabled if all password requirements have been met. If this button appears grey, the new password does not meet all the requirements.
