How do I change the password for my account?

VigilEnt Policy Center 2.0

VigilEnt Policy Center 2.1

Microsoft SQL Server 7.0

Microsoft SQL Server 2000


The VigilEnt Policy Center (VPC) application uses a logon account to Microsoft SQL Server for database access. Use the following steps to create a new password if the current password is lost or changed:

  1. Open Microsoft Windows Explorer.
  2. If the default directory is used during installation, click c:\Program Files\PentaSafe\VigilEnt Policy Center\server. If another directory path was created, locate the server folder.

  3. Open the file in Microsoft Notepad.

  4. On the line beginning default.Password=, change the text following the first equal (=) character to jEFdIA2W5h4=.

  5. The Microsoft SQL Server database administrator must now change the password for the VPC database user to temppw.

  6. Load the Service Manager, and then restart the VigilEnt Policy Center service.

  7. Log on to the VPC Administration Site, and then click Administration.

  8. Click Options, and then click Database.

  9. Change the VPC Microsoft SQL Server logon password using temppw as the current password. The password should be updated in Microsoft SQL Server and in the VPC configuration files.

  10. By default, this user ID is vpc_user. The name may have changed during installation.
