This topic provides information on removing passwords from configuration scripts after Lotus® Quickr™ has been installed and configured.
The installation and configuration processes write security-sensitive information into multiple files. These files contain passwords in them, which are not removed after installation. When you no longer need this information, you should remove it and move the files to a safe place or set the file permissions so that only authorized users can read them.
After you have installed Lotus Quickr and configured its components, follow these steps to remove this sensitive information:
- Access the Lotus Quickr configuration directory:
Windows® and UNIX®:
- Open a command prompt.
- Change to the directory wp_profile_root/ConfigEngine.
- Remove the work directory that was created during the Lotus Quickr installation:
- Enter the appropriate command:
- UNIX: ./ConfigEngine.sh cleanup-work-dir
- Windows: ConfigEngine.bat cleanup-work-dir
Note: Check the output for any error messages before proceeding with any additional tasks. If any of the configuration tasks fail, verify the values in the wkplc.properties and wkplc_comp.properties files.
Start the server.
Open a command prompt and change to the following directory:
Remove all passwords from the wkplc.properties and wkplc_comp.properties files by entering the appropriate command:
- UNIX: ./ConfigEngine.sh delete-passwords
- Windows: ConfigEngine.bat delete-passwords
Passwords must also be restored to any backup properties files you have created.
Check the output for any error messages before proceeding with any additional tasks. If any of the configuration tasks fail, verify the values in the wkplc.properties
To run additional configuration tasks, you might need to restore passwords to the wkplc.properties
files or specify them on the command line using the -D
flag. Refer to Configuration task reference: qp85
for more information.
