How to change account used by VUM to connect to VC

I have a problem with my VMware vCenter Update Manager since the account used during the installation to connect to vCenter was changed.

Does anyone knows how change this account on  VMware vCenter Update Manager so it can connect to vCenter without having to re-install VUM?

Tahnks.

you will probably have to mount the VUM media and do a repair/modify on the install.

Unfortunately this approach only allows to remove the current installation, it does not allows to modify it.

I don't have the media handy, but this should work... brb

I already tried it.  I used the same media originally used during its installation and the only option presented is to remove the installation.

On the current version of vCenter Update Manager 4.1, it must be uninstalled and re-installed with the new credentials of the account used to connect to vCenter.

There isn't any option to modify or change the current installation.
