Issue/Introduction



Customer is moving from derby db to DB2, db2 team has some questions. What happend if the id used to access db2 has a password that expires (will the application run anymore) Is there a process to update an DB2 password that is going to expire? Or the only way is to have an ID with NON-Expiring password?

Environment

Release:
Component: WBVLUW

Resolution

It's best to have the non-expiring password, otherwise the application won't work until they run the ConfigTool to reset the Password to the new one. Because the password is encrypted, it's not something they can change themselves in the WVProfile.properties file. the password should be non-expiring for the Web Viewer connection's "User".
