The console has no functionality to set passwords.  You set passwords by
editing the configuration files, making sure you use the same password
in the Director and the client's or storage daemon's configuration file
(and, for Catalog access, in your database).  To change a password, just
replace the password string in both places where it's used
(bacula-dir.conf and one of bacula-fd.conf, bacula-sd.conf, or your
database) and restart the affected Bacula daemons.  The password string
can contain absolutely anything you like and can be of any length.  As
best I recall, it is sent across the network as an MD5 hash, not in clear.
