On Windows when the CA Spectrum processd (process daemon) install user's password changes, the processd service needs to be reconfigured/reinstalled with the updated password. If not, the next time the processd is stopped, it will not start. This document provides guidance and tips when reinstalling the processd service.
Spectrum installed on Windows
If the SpectroSERVER and/or processd are running, you will need to stop them (you can stop the "Spectrum Process Daemon" service from the Windows Services and this will gracefully stop both the SpectroSERVER and the processd).
NOTE: Do not open a bash -login shell as this will not work. The commands need to be run from the Windows cmd shell
If the password has special characters in it, you need to enclose the password in quotes.For example:
processd --install --username spectrum --password '$$pectrum'

Please reference the "Broadcom TechDocs : CA Spectrum 10.4.1 - Change the Windows Password in Processd" section of the documentation for more information.
