7. Changing your TSM Password

You should change the password given to you by Registration as soon as you have successfully logged into the TSM hub window to something more meaningful to you. Remember that your password represents the security of your archives. Anyone who learns your password can damage your archives so choose one difficult to guess, and keep it to yourself. The initial letters of some phrase of significance to yourself is often a good choice. TSM passwords are case independent. In addition to letters and digits they can contain the characters + - _ . & (plus, minus, underscore, point, ampersand); a password must be between 6 and 63 characters long. To change your TSM password, start the TSM Backup program. From the initial window choose the Utilities menu and select the [Change Password...] option. The following screen will be displayed:
