I need to reset the local windows postgres account that is created as the super user during apm install. I am following this article: https://knowledge.broadcom.com/external/article?articleId=12881
My question is about the local account. Will reset the password in Postgres
Do I reset the local windows account or reset it in windows? Resetting in in windows prompts a message that says all data will be deleted.
Release : 10.7.0
Component : Introscope
Changing the password won't result in actual data loss as in deleted, but loss as in not accessible.
Changing the password for the "postgres" user would involve updating the password for its Windows user account "postgres" and for the postgresql db administration. As a precaution, the user may want to back up their postgressql db first before trying out the steps for their specific Postgresql version.
