Thanks Yusaku.

I was using the current password for the target user :)
I’ll file a bug for the local user.

Hi Asisha,

1. When you tried to change the password for another user, you need to type the current password
for the currently-logged-in user and the new password for the target user.  Were you typing
the current password for the target user instead?
2. Only admins can change the password for non-admin users.  This is a usability issue, but
this has not been addressed yet.  Do you want to go ahead and file a bug?

I am using ambari-1.2.4.

I have a couple of questions about creating/editing users from the UI.

  1.  When I create an admin user, and then try to change the password. The UI throws an error
- “An internal system exception occurred. Wrong password entered.” (I didn’t enter the
wrong password. But, if I log out and log in as the newly created user, it lets me change
the password. Can one admin user not change the password for the other?
  2.  If I create a local user, I cant change the password .. Same error as the one above.
In this case, even if I log in as the local user created, there is no option to change password.
Can the admin users not change passwords for local users? If not, how can we change password
for the local user?
