Reset the user password

Unlock the user at the first time otherwise you will get below error 

unable to log in because the password has expired. <a href=’/ovirt-engine/sso/credentials-change.html’>change the password</a> to proceed.

# ovirt-aaa-jdbc-tool user unlock user1

Check the user details Like User password validation, user is locked and user is enabled

# ovirt-aaa-jdbc-tool user show user1

As you see in above screenshot user password is not valid with current date, we have to update, use below command

# ovirt-aaa-jdbc-tool user edit user1 --password-valid-to="2022-12-31 23:30:53Z"

Login to RHV-M Web UI then login to Administration portal then navigate to Administration –> Configure –> Add 

Enter the username in the empty box then click on Go

Select the user (tick mark)
