Puredisk client local password change ?

Hi, new to PD, can anyone tell me if a change to the local admin credential on a PD client will impact the backups of that client ? Is the local admin PW/credential used/stored anywhere in PD or will it just continue happily ?

Puredisk runs as local system account and uses a web cert to verify client and server credentials.  If someone changes the local admin or user account, it should not matter, as long as the password of the admin or user account is correct.

That would be a problem only if you change the password of the securit object that is provided for PureDisk agent to run on. As Terry mentioned above, usually this runs on a Local System account, so that's not an issue.

Sometimes, i.e. for SMB backups, PureDisk agent runs with services logged on using different account than the Local System account. If that password would be changed PureDisk agent would need to be reinstalled and re-registered using the same Agent ID (in order to maintain the logical connection with the previous backups and the agent logical instance).
