Appendix D: Updating Credentials on PK Protect Repository Database

When installing PK Protect and selecting DB authentication a DB user account is created (e.g., on SQL Server) and the encrypted service account name and password are stored in the DgConnection.properties file.

When password aging is instituted for DB accounts for security purposes, the service account password may require changes on periodic basis. When the account updates, the credentials need to be updated in PK Protect as well. Update the DB authentication credentials in each of the following files below. Use DGCL to generate the encrypted entry.

DGCL Command:

encrypt " <stringToEncrypt>";

Copy the encrypted value (e.g., JWFH+XG1aqytPIlaUbr3fQ==) into the following files.
