Issue How to change the password of the SafeGuard Enterprise certificate store on a computer running the Management Center.
Known to apply to the following Sophos product(s) and version(s) SafeGuard Management Center / Local Policy Editor
Operating systems All supported operating systems
The following procedure is used to change the log-on password to the Management Center for a Security Officer that has not been promoted:
This will not change the p12 password of the Security Officer certificate but only the password of the Certificate Store that stores the cer file. This will also change the password only for the currently logged-on Windows Account, since every account uses its own Certificate Store.
The above procedure does not apply to promoted security officers.
