Me Too!I have the same issue
Product(s): System Recovery - BESR 2010, System Recovery - SSR 2011, System Recovery
Severity: Non-data threatening / major functionality
Status: Investigating/gathering information
Tech Note: More Information


Editing the password credential using the console/UI's Define Backup Wizard | Backup Destinations 
within a standalone / non-managed BESR/SSR installation does not change the backup job's cached credentials.


Windows OS based BESR/SSR clients.


WORKAROUND: Stop the BESR / SSR service, follow the steps outline in the technote listed below, and re-create the backup schedule/job.
