This topic describes how to update the database administrator password.
- Follow these steps in order. You must stop the servers before you change your password in DB2® or Oracle. If your password had expired you might need to end the server processes or restart the system to verify that the servers are stopped.
- The Lotus® Expeditor Server update process for the DB2 administrator password does not automatically update DB2 Everyplace® subscriptions configured with the same administrator ID and password. You must modify database administrator passwords manually for any existing subscriptions.
- If you are operating in a DB2 Everyplace clustered environment perform these steps on every node.
Follow these steps to update the database administrator password:
- Stop all of the Lotus Expeditor Server application servers before beginning the database administrator password change. For more information, see Start and stopping the servers.
- On the database server, change the database administrator password in the local operating system and in DB2 or Oracle. Verify that you have changed the password in the DB2 Windows® services that use this user ID to log in, and verify that those services can start successfully after the password has been changed.
- Choose one of the following configuration methods:
(Optional): If you are running the Mobile Device Administration Center in a remote environment, follow instructions at http://www.ibm.com/support/docview.wss?uid=swg21260207 to change the DB2Everyplace database administrator password on the remote Mobile Device Administration Center system.
- Using the configuration wizard
- Using the response file (change-db-pass.rsp)
Using the configuration wizard
To update the database administrator password, follow these steps:
- Launch the configuration wizard. See Using the configuration wizard for further instructions.
- Click Next on the Welcome panel to continue the configuration. The Configuration Mode Selection panel is displayed.
- Select Update existing Database Administrator Password and click Next.
- If prompted for database type, select the database type for the password being updated. This panel only displays when DB2 and Oracle are being used.
- Specify the new password that you want to assign to the database administrator.
- Click Next. The Configuration Summary panel is displayed.
- Review the changes that you configured and click Next to start the configuration update. The progress bar indicates the status of the server configuration update.
- When the configuration completes, click Finish.
- Optional: Verify the server configuration using the Verify Installation option from the First Steps menu. For more information, see Using the First Steps console.
Using the response file (change-db-pass.rsp)
To update the database administrator password using the change-db-pass.rsp
file, follow these steps.
For more information about response files, see Response files
- Edit the change-db-pass.rsp file, located in the expeditor_install_dir/config directory, and update the newpassword option as shown:
- If updating the password for an Oracle database configuration, update the dbType option as shown:
- For DB2 Everyplace clustered environments only, specify true if the cluster should be started after the configuration. Otherwise, specify false if the cluster should remain stopped after the configuration. For example:
- Save the response file and run the following command as shown:
: ./config.sh -silent -options path/change-db-pass.rsp
: config.bat -silent -options path\\change-db-pass.rsp
where path is the fully-qualified path where the response file is located.
Wait for the command to finish successfully. If an error is displayed, review the expeditor_install_dir/logs/config.log file.
