Make a copy of login.jsp that is in the jsp folder / directory and save to new name in case you need to revert to original file.
  • On Widows OS the jsp folder if installed to the default path will be C:\Program Files (x86)\APC\PowerChute Business Edition\agent\comp\http\html\jsp
  • On Linux the default path is /opt/APC/PowerChuteBusinessEdition/Agent/comp/http/html/jsp
  • NOTE: On Windows OS you may need to change the permissions of the PowerChute folder to allow editing of the file. On linux you will need to be supper user.
Open login.jsp with a text editor i.e. notepad, wordpad, vi, etc:
Change the line maxlenght="20" in the login.jsp file to read maxlenght="128"  Save and close the file.
Restart the Agent Service 
Re-launch the web interface
