When editing any passwords in the TeamConnect teamconnect.properties file--ONLY in this file, which is the web application descriptor, not elsewhere--you must encrypt the password using the TeamConnect Encryption Tool provided in your TeamConnect installation media.
Important: Make sure to modify the following instructions according to your operating system.
To encrypt a password:
- In a command-line window, navigate to the directory /utilities/encrypt on the TeamConnect installation media.
- Make sure your Java bin path is set properly. For more information on setting this path, see your Java documentation.
- Run the following command:
java -jar encrypt.jar yourpassword
Replace your password in the example above with the password you would like to encrypt.
This command outputs an encrypted version of your password. The encrypted password is a string of capital letters. You may copy this password and paste it where necessary.
