Issue/Introduction

Without setting up the passwordless SSH to the database admin user “dradmin” can we take the DR backup?  I do not know the password for dradmin, how I can proceed with passwordless SSH configuration for the dradmin user*?

Environment

All supported releases

Resolution

1. Yes, passwordless ssh is required to perform a vbr.py backup

2. You can reset the OS password for the database administrator OS user (default = dradmin) without effect on the database itself.
