Viewing password archive

The Asset Administrator can access a previous password for an account for a specific date.

The Password Archive dialog only displays previously assigned passwords for the selected asset based on the date specified. This dialog does not display the current password for the asset. The password archive is never purged.

You view an account's password validation and reset history on the Check and Change Log tab.

To access an account's previous password

  1. Navigate to Administrative Tools | Accounts.
  2. In Accounts, right-click an account name and choose Password Archive.

    Or, click Password Archive from the toolbar.

  3. In the Password Archive dialog, select a date.

    TIP: If you select today's date (or a previous date) and no entries are returned, this indicates that the asset is still using the current password.

  4. In the View column, click to display the password that was assigned to the asset at that given date and time.
  5. In the details dialog, click Copy to copy the password to your copy buffer, or click OK to close the dialog.
