This article refers to Barracuda ArchiveOne Enterprise version 6.5.3 and higher.

  1. On a domain controller, open Active Directory Users and Computers.
  2. Reset the password for the ArchiveOneAdmin account.
  3. Reset the password for the ArchiveOneAdminAccountsForest account to the same password used for the ArchiveOneAdmin account.
  4. On the Archive server, launch the ArchiveOne Admin console.
  5. Right-click the Status node, and click Manage Password.
  6. Enter the new password for the ArchiveOneAdmin account.
  7. Close the ArchiveOneAdmin console.
