    resetting MySQL passwords

    How can I view and reset MySQL passwords in SFX version 3?

    Mysql passwords are encrypted, it's not possible to check what they are in version 3. By default, they are identical to the unix user names or database names (i.e. sfxglcl3 would be the mysql password of the sfxlcl3 instance, regardless of whether the instance has a public alias such as sfx_local). For resetting/changing mysql passwords, you should use our server_admin_util tool, option 3 (Change passwords). To do this, please follow our instructions in the SysAdmin Guide, section 4.4.2 .

    Additional Information




    Note: Ex Libris strongly recommends keeping your passwords secure based on the Ex Libris Password Management Policy.

    We recommend that the default passwords be changed to a complex combination and maintained.

    Cloud customers are assured that Ex Libris maintains passwords based on best practice in the industry.
