Unanswered: How to change db2admin password ?
I need to change the password for db2admin user.
If I change it, then db2 service does not start. I guess I might have installed the software as db2admin.
How can I work around it. I am not sure how to but if I manage to change the password for db2 service, will there be anything else to do for successful start and run ?
Please advise, thanks
You use the OS to change the password.
Very simple !!

What is your OS and DB2 version?
I don't use Windows a lot so not really sure, but did you try changing the password during connect to the db (connect to ... using <pwd> new <new pwd>...)
Well, I think I should try to say it in different words!
When we install DB2 on windows OS then few services are created. For example one is DB2 - DB2COPY1 - DB2
If I change password at system level then on next db2start this service cannot log on to windows. DB2 won't run.
So if I need to change password of db2 adminstrator (db2admin user) then I must go through list of services that need new password to log on to system so that whole db2 system starts seamlessly.
My question was to some one who had done it already; to help me with list of such things to do.
For an example we have DB2 administration commands for Administration server as
What are other commands for other db2 services ??
>db2admin setid db2admin mynewsecret
>db2admin setschedid db2admin mynewsecret
> db2admin start
