Password Management for SDX’s and VPX’s using NMAS

Step 3: SSH to your SDX appliance and type “show systemuser” and hit enter. You’re wanting to obtain the Id for whichever user you want to change the password for. This Id is specific to each SDX and it doesn’t change once configured. In my case I have two users. I’m interested in nsroot so my Id is “5674b3c1d2b1d9f077983cf3”

Step 4: Back in NMAS you’ll name your Job and select the correct instance (Netscaler SDX). Leave the Configuration Source as Configuration Template and SSH alone, on the right side you’ll need to type (copy and paste will not work) set systemuser id=5674b3c1d2b1d9f077983cf3 password=nsroot

Once finished you’ll be returned back to the Configuration Jobs menu and you should see your job, It’ll run in just a moment. Make sure that under Execution Summary it states “Completed” if it errors select the job and edit appropriately. Under Actions to the right you can download a report if needed for further clarification on error.
