Updating the enterprise database credentials

When the password for an enterprise database expires or has been changed, HCL Traveler will need to be updated with the new credentials.

You can do this using the travelerUtil utility. For HCL Traveler Servers running on Windows™, update the database credentials with the following command:
travelerUtil db set user=[userName] pw=[newPassword]
For HCL Traveler Servers running on Linux™ or AIX, update the database credentials with the following command:
./travelerUtil db set user=[userName] pw=[newPassword]
For HCL Traveler Servers running on IBM i, do the following:
  1. Run the following command to start the QShell Interpreter:
    QSH
  2. Navigate to the HCL Traveler utility directory:
    cd /<domino data>/traveler/util
    
  3. Update the database credentials with the following command:
    ./travelerUtil db set user=[userName] pw=[newPassword] 

In all cases, the user and pw parameters can be omitted. If you do omit them, you will be prompted to enter their values.

Since you are not changing the database type or the database the HCL Traveler Server is using, you do not need to specify the JDBC URL as you were instructed to in Configuring HCL Traveler for enterprise database.

The travelerUtil will validate the user and password by attempting to connect to the database. Once a connection has successfully been made, the connection will be closed and the new credentials will be encrypted and stored in the LotusTraveler.nsf.

Repeat this process for every HCL Traveler server in the high availability pool.

Important: Changing the database user name is not recommended unless you are certain the user has appropriate access to the database. If you are using DB2, you must also ensure the correct schema is used by setting NTS_DB2_SCHEMA in the notes.ini file to the correct schema name, generally the old DB user name.
