SYSADM Password
Hello,

We would like to change our SYSADM password. Are there any gotcha's we
should watch for?

Thanks.

Steve:

What environment? Mainframe? Win/NT, AIX, other?
- on the mainframe, there are no problems doing this that I'm aware of
(in fact, you SHOULD change the SYSADM password periodically for
security reasons, just like you do for your own ids)
- on Win/NT there are a couple little "gotchas" to changing the
DB2ADMIN password

What release of DB2?

Ooops -- I usually include that - sorry.

DB2 v7.1, OS 390 V2R10

There was some reluctance to change it, so I said I'd ask the "list".
Sounds like we can go forward.

We have tried to avoid including the password in DB2. V7 does have the
CONNECT with userid and password (in host variables only). If that's being
used to signon as SYSADM or the RRS authorized signon, then those programs
need to be changed. That's all I can think of.

Steve,
you get two SYSADM IDs. So if your a little shy about it change each at
different intervals.
