Hello, I'm ssh'd into our CVMs and trying to change the default "nutanix" password using the passwd command. I'm getting the following error:

passwd: Authentication token manipulation error

Am I doing this incorrectly?

Any suggestions?

Thank you

Hi @Chadd

Assuming you are running AOS 5.1 and later, try using the following command: sudo passwd nutanix
