Issue Details

I am using the web configuration utility to change the password on my NI real-time target. After I hit the Change Password button and enter in a new password, the password doesn't appear to change or confirm that I entered a new password. Why is this happening?


After you enter a new password using the Change Password button, you have to scroll to the bottom of the page and select Save in order to save your changes and change the password on your target as shown below:

After you save your changes, you will be logged out of the system and can then log back in with your new password.
