Appliance Management Console login and user password change

The AMS functionality differs between NetBackup Appliance and NetBackup Virtual Appliance in the following terms only:

  • Login page

    The NetBackup software appliance has a NetBackup Appliance Web Console, which provides a login page for the Appliance Management Console. The NetBackup Appliance Web Console is not available on NetBackup Virtual Appliance. AMS provides a separate login page on NetBackup Virtual Appliance.

  • User password change

    The Appliance Management Console lets you change user passwords on NetBackup Appliance but not on NetBackup Virtual Appliance. To change a user password, use the NetBackup Virtual Appliance Shell Menu.
