RPRM Upgrade from 8.4 to 10.3 - will the User passwords change?

Hi all,


Looked in the FAQ and KB, couldn't find an answer.

We're preparing the upgrade (incremental) from RPRM v8.4 to v10.3. v8.4 is currently running in Production, v10.3 - in the Lab. 

 

We have ~1,200 users in Production, for the video endpoints. Every endpoint has it's system name which is identical to User ID and password. Not secure at all, but being a completely closed network with only a handful people accessing the RPRM, this is not a concern. v8.4 allows us to do this. It seems this is not the case with v10.3, which forbids passwords to be udentical to User ID's. We can live with that, probably, but my question is - what happens with already existing users during upgrade? Will their passwords be disabled? I'd like to avoid a situation where we have to re-configure 12 hundred of passwords and endpoints.

 

Thanks!

Hello @Leprechaun,

welcome to the Polycom Community.

A quick test could be to use your Lab setup.

 

I ran this via a couple of people internally and they suggested you raise this with Polycom support.

 

A similar case was 1-8394951579 / IE-21974 where we could address the issue via a script.
