This article explains two different methods of changing a "Nimbus" or "CA UIM" users password. These are users that are able to login to Infrastructure Manager and are not associated with an account.

The first method assumes we are the user and we currently have our password.

The second method changes another users password and assumes we have the rights to do so.
