Question

How do I change the Internal Authentication password used by the internal ADG MSSQL Logins?


Requirements

  • Forensic Tools 7.5.1.127 or newer
  • MSSQL for the backend database

 

Resolution

  1. Stop all AccessData services and programs.
  2. On the application server, and any machines with AccessData clients, do the following:
    1. Open DBConfig as Administrator.
    2. Highlight the desired database connection and click Edit Configuration.
    3. Click the lock next to Internal Authentication Mode.
    4. Select Database Authentication in the drop-down.
    5. Enter your new Database Password.
    6. Click Connect.
    7. At the Administrator Authorization dialog, enter/select credentials with sysadmin permissions in MSSQL and click OK.
  3. Restart any AccessData services.


Notes

  • If multiple machines are pointed to the database, DBConfig will need to be updated with the new password on all other machines with the above steps.
