Changing External Database Password

If you are using an external Oracle database and the database password is changed (for example, because mandated by the company security policy), you can change the password the Management Server uses to connect to the database by using the ssh-mgmt-tool command. Access to this command is restricted to the operating system user root to deny unauthorized password changes.

To change the password the Management Server uses to connect to the Orcale database, execute the following steps:

  1. Stop the Management Server.

  2. Start the password change by running the following command as root:

    # ssh-mgmt-tool -d

    The command is located in <server-root>/server/sbin (by default /opt/ssh-mgmt/server/sbin).

    1. Enter the new password for the database. The typing will not be echoed on the terminal.

    2. Enter the password again.

  3. Restart the Management Server for the changes to take effect.
