How can I change FTP password on a backup service node?


  1. Log in to Backup Node via SSH and and execute:

    # passwd *user*

    Note: user is a login which was set during adding backup node to PPA. To check the name of the configured user go to Infrastructure -> Service Nodes -> NODE_NAME -> Packages -> PPM -> ppa_backup 1.7 (other) -> Package properties. User will be listed as below:
