Solution:
To change your username, password or authentication phrase:
1. Stop the PowerChute service.
On Windows open a command prompt as an administrator and enter the command net stop pcns1
On Linux enter from command window enter sudo service PowerChute stop or systemctl stop PowerChute
2. Go to the group1 directory where PowerChute is installed.
On Windows the default path is
C:\Program files\APC\PowerChute\group1
On Linux the default path is
/opt/APC/PowerChute/group1
3. Make a backup of the pcnsconfig.ini file - copy it to another directory and rename it to pcnsconfig-backup.ini.
4. Open pcnsconfig.ini in a text editor.
5. In the [NetworkManagementCard] section of the INI file, set the following lines with your new values:
username= new user name
password= new password
You can also enter the Authentication Phrase user for communications with the Network Management Card
authenticationPhrase= new phrase (note the capital P use with the word Phrase )
6. Save pcnsconfig.ini.
7. Start the PowerChute service and log in with your new username and password.
On Windows open a command prompt as an administrator and enter the command net start pcns1
On Linux enter from command window enter sudo service PowerChute start or systemctl start PowerChute

Notes:
For security, the username, password, and authentication phrase lines will be deleted from the pcnsconfig.ini file when the PowerChute service is restarted.
The new username, password, and authentication phrase must meet the password requirements laid out in the PowerChute Network Shutdown user manual or this process may fail.
