Kaseya VSA Password Expiration Policy

Kaseya VSA Password Expiration Policy


ProVal Tech’s MSP consultant Tobin shares Kaseya VSA’s Password Expiration Policy. Tobin goes into detail about how to change the maximum password age in the VSA. Kaseya VSA’s update on July 11th, 2021 automatically defaulted the password age to 30 days and until now was unable to increase this time. The new update of the Kaseya Patch 9.5.7a has allowed the user to extend the password days from 30 days to 90. Click on ‘Show More’ to watch the step by step to follow along with how to extend your password expiration policy with VSA.

Step by Step:

  1. With the release of Kaseya VSA patch 9.5.7a released on July 11th, 2021, the maximum password age was set to 30 days by default and was unable to be used by your team your end-users probably noticed this.
  2. With the release of 9.5.7e otherwise known as 3.1.98 released on August 28th, 2021 Kaseya has allowed us to extend the maximum password age to 90 days. While this does not allow you to extend it past 90 days it does reduce the need to change your password from 12 times a year to four.
  3. Within your VSA we're going to select system.
  4. We're going to scroll down to server management and we're going to select login policy.
  5. From here you're going to see a section - specify password strength policy, under days it may or may not be set to 30 at this time.
  6. In order to change this highlight, enter 90 and select update from the top.
  7. Once the page loads you should see 90 days, that's how you'll know that it's saved.
