Re: Ranger Admin Password check warning alert

This means, password for "admin" user or "amb_ranger_admin" user in ranger has changed, but not updated in Ambari.

Please refer https://docs.hortonworks.com/HDPDocuments/HDP2/HDP-2.6.4/bk_security/content/updating_ranger_admin_p...

Re: Ranger Admin Password check warning alert

You can check two things.

1] Check Ranger External URL is correct. (Ranger configs -> Advanced)

2] Check password for "admin" user or "amb_ranger_admin" user. If they are changed in Ranger, they also need to be updated in Ambari. Refer https://docs.hortonworks.com/HDPDocuments/HDP2/HDP-2.6.4/bk_security/content/updating_ranger_admin_p...
