How can I change the PDS user password?
The explanation for how to do this seems to have dropped out of our 3.13 documentation. It was nicely documented in the 3.12 PDS manual (Section 8 - Changing PDS password). Here's the description:
You need to change the password in the ./dat01/tab_management table, then also add the new password into the tab_service.<institution> table(s), where the metalib_x_server.pl is used.
For example, an AUTHENTICATE service line becomes:
PROGRAM-NAME metalib_x_server.pl www.myuni.com,8334,BOR-AUTH,pds,1234
In the above example, pds is the username and 1234 is the password.
Change this for the BOR_INFO service as well, and for other institutions that use metalib_x_server.pl
If no new username/password is added to the tab_service.<institution> tables then the default value (pds/pds) is used.
