I dont know what the version of Red Hat Linux is.
I changed the password for the Yosemite Backup application itself.  I logged out of the Yosemite Backup application, and then logged back in with my new password with success.  Note that this new password is exactly the same as the old password.  Yosemite Backup seemed to allow me to change the old password to the same exact value as the new password....

I then changed the Yosemite Backup settings so the password would never expire.  That is all I did.  I then logged out of the Yosemite Backup application.

I then had to log back in to the Yosemite Backup application, and it did not accept the new password!!   It let me in before, so why not now?  Do you think there is something within the application that is not allowing me to use the same value for the new password as the old password?  If so, why did it let me change it like that without any warnings, and why did it let me log back in the first time after changing it?

Thanks!

You can find your Redhat release by doing

cat /etc/redhat-release

If you tried to set the new password to the same value as the old password, you would have got the message:

Password unchanged

or something similar if you did it was the backup user itself.

If you did it as root, then there's no way of telling.

Tintin or anybody else,
If I resinstall the Yosemite backup software, can I start with a new password?

If I reinstall with the new software, can I still use the tapes that the 'old' installation used?

Thanks
