How to change repository password?

Jump to solution

DPA on Windows running MySQL 5.7

I tried to change the password in the Admin, but it said the way to reset the password is to edit repo.properties and restart DPA.

That doesn't work. It fails and goes to the error screen. The one where it says, "if the port has changed."

I've tried doing it the way they say with startup.bat. I've tried restarting Ignite services. I've tried changing the user's password in MySQL AND DPA, that doesn't work.

Is this some weird thing with Windows and MySQL? Is there a better way than just changing in repo.properties and restarting?

I'd open a ticket, but I think SolarWinds has other things on their minds right now ...

TIA

Figured it out. Just in case anyone else runs into this error.

Changing the password in MySQL won't work. Had to drop user from MySQL then recreate using the standard setup script: 

CREATE USER '<USER>'@'%' IDENTIFIED BY '<PASSWORD>';
GRANT ALL PRIVILEGES ON database.* TO '<USER>'@'%';

Not sure why, but this did work.
