Change the Admin Password on Distributed CloudΒΆ

You can change the keystone admin user password across the entire Distributed Cloud system.


Ensure that all subclouds are managed and online.


  1. Change the password.

    1. Do one of the following to change a keystone admin user password on System Controller.

      • From the Horizon Web Interface, select the RegionOne mode, navigate to the Identity dashboard and click on the Users panel. Select Change Password from the Edit menu for the Admin user. For more information, see RegionOne and SystemController Modes.

      • From the CLI:

        ~(keystone_admin)]$ openstack --os-region-name SystemController user password set

        Respond to the prompts to complete the process.


        During system bootstrap, the platform does not support the use of quotation characters in the keystone user password.

    2. Source the script /etc/platform/openrc if you will continue to use the environment from the previous CLI command.

      $ source /etc/platform/openrc


      In a subcloud, if the CLI command returns an authentication error after you source the script /etc/platform/openrc, you can verify the password on the subcloud by using the env | grep OS_PASSWORD command . If it returns the old password, you will need to run the keyring set CGCS admin command and provide the new admin password.
