Veeam Backup And Replication how to update the password

I was forced to change my VMware ESXi 5.1 password yesterday  and now I'm getting the following error messages on my Veeam Backup and Replication 9.5:

 " Failed to create processing task for VM WLLARCHIVE Error: Cannot complete login due to an incorrect user name or password. "

How do I update the Veeam Backup and Replication to show the new password to communicate back with my VMware ESXi 5.1?

Find "Manage Credentials" in main menu and change it there. Then, go to "backup infrastructure", find a desired ESXi host and select to "rescan" it to make sure that Veeam can access it.

I've done as instructed and this is what I'm seeing on my Backup Server.  VeeamStatus.png

Seeing no issues here so far:) You can also right-click on an ESXi in here and go through its settings, double-checking the provided credentials and letting Veeam re-connect to it, validating the creds.

Again, if the Backup/Replication Jobs still don't work and error out, try to click though ESXi settings to make sure Veeam can connect there. Screenshots that you provide don't indicate any issues

It's failing at the VMware vSphere:

So!  I should just wait until tomorrow and see if the Backup and Replication works?
Andrew ZhelezkoCommented:
Can you restart Veeam services (or better the whole Veeam server) and tell me if you changed the password via "manage credentials" and then clicked through ESXi settings?
NJ-EWhiteIT CoordinatorAuthor Commented:
OK!  Looks like I had to go in to the VMware vCenter Server and also change the root password for the vCenter5.5 there also.

Thanks for all your help in this matter.VeeamStatusV.png
