How To Reset, Change User Password In Windows Home Server 2011 Vail

In a client-server environment users are bound to forget their passwords or end up having expired accounts. A password reset in such a case resolves the problem.  In this post I will tell you how to change user password in Windows Home Server 2011 (Vail).

Open the Dashboard, go to the Users tab, select a user name and right click on it. From the right-click menu, select “Change the User Account Password”. Other functions in this context menu allow managing user rights and deleting an account.


Enter a desired password and click on Change Password to reset a user account password. The type of password that you can keep will largely depend on the password policy that you have configured for the users.
