Task "Set VPS XXX Administrator password" fails with the output:

1025 : Can't modify Container parameters :
ERROR:Cannot set password in CT XXX for user Administrator
ERROR:SetUserPassword for container XXX returned 0x040008AD


VPS was created on the hardware node with localized host OS, so, instead of Administrator, user Administrateur is created(e.g. if the locale is French). However, there is an activation parameter "Administrator VPS password" in the settings of the service template used to create VPS, and it presumes that the "Administrator" user should be present in the container.

The parameter "Administrator VPS password" was removed in POA 5.5, so the issue should not occur in this version.


Currently localized host OSes are not fully supported by POA. There is a feature request POA-75608 "Default privileged user must be Administrator for Windows container in POA" to implement their support in future. To fix the failed task, please to the following:

  1. Log into the problem container
  2. Create Administrator user inside it
  3. Re-run the failed task
