Change default passwords for xmsadmin and xinstall

How do you change the default passwords for xmsadmin and xinstall?

I have read the doc.

https://support.emc.com/docu71061_XtremIO-XIOS--4.0.2-and-4.0.4-and-4.0.10-and-4.0.15-and-4.0.25-with-XMS--4.2.0-and-4.2.1-and-4.2.2-Storage-Array-Security-Configuration-Guide.pdf?language=en_US

And this support article.

https://emcservice.force.com/CustomersPartners/kA2j0000000QXG5CAO

The support article doesn't address how to change passwords for xmsadmin and xinstall.

To change those passwords you will need to contact your sales team to open an RPQ. Once that has been done support can assist with changing them as they require root level access to change.

RPQ ?  Term RPQ is used to request support for something that is not on the official support matrix/E-Lab.  Why does password charge require an RPQ ?
