Good morning,

INFO: Start changing password for database 'cmf'...

Starting database engine cmfEng

ERROR: Failed to Start Database 'cmf' because: Could not connect to engine 'cmfEng' on 'cmfDb' in Bulk mode. Check user id and passwords

ERROR: Failed to update new userinfo into database.

Stopping database engine cmfEng

Unable to stop database server -- Invalid user ID or password.

ERROR: Failed to stop the database engine with old password: .

ERROR: Failed change password for database 'cmf'.

Please see log file /var/adm/CSCOpx/log/dbpwdChange.log for details.

Has anybody any idea, what to do?

Thank you

What version of LMS is this?

Also, if you run it with the following syntax does it work:

" dsn=cmf encryption=yes npwd="

Thank you for advise.
