Hi JC,

This password can be reset using Admin Utility (C:\Program Files\Cisco\bin\AdminUtility.exe)

This tool should only be used during Off-Production Hours. This password is used for other tasks as shown in the attached link;

This utility will sync the Passwords for all of these you use the Admin Utility to sync the passwords BackAdmin will be reset (and usable for your project)

SQLSvc, CCMServiceRW, CCMService, CCMCDR and CCMUser

From this excellent Tech Note;

Hope this helps!

Hi Rob,

Thanks for your time answering to my question. This week I synchronize passwords for SQLSvc service for another issue with this procedure, but which service should I synchronize passwords for BARS application??
