ProcedureTo Update a Password Alias

Use the update-password-alias subcommand in remote mode to change the password for an existing password alias. The update-password-alias subcommand takes both a secure interactive form, in which the user is prompted for all information, and a more script-friendly form, in which the password is propagated on the command line.

  1. Ensure that the server is running.

    Remote subcommands require a running server.

  2. Update an alias by using the update-password-alias(1) subcommand.

  3. Type the password when prompted.
