After your database administrator changes the password for the vCloud Director database, you must update all the vCloud Director and Cloud Proxy instances with the new password.
Plan downtime of the system until you update at least one vCloud Director instance with the new database password.
Verify that the database administrator has changed the password for the vCloud Director database.
- Log in to vCloud Director or Cloud Proxy instance through SSH.
You must use root credentials.
- To update the configuration of the vCloud Director or Cloud Proxy instance and leave all other connection properties unchanged, run the following command:
#cell-management-tool reconfigure-database \ -dbuser vcd-dba -dbpassword <new-password>
You can locate the cell management tool in the /opt/vmware/vcloud-director/bin/cell-management-tool directory.
- Reboot the vCloud Director or Cloud Proxy instance.
For more information on changing the password for a vCloud Director database, see Update Database Connection Properties.
