Password change for DB user used for TRAPS.

Password change for DB user used for TRAPS.

Hi Team,


We have a traps ESM setup running successfully. console and core are installed in one server, But the DB is in another server. We are using windows authentication for login into DB ( ESM is configured with this domain user to login with DB while installing). now we need to change the password for this user.

What are the changes I need to do in TRAPS for reflecting the password-change?

thanks in advance.

Re: Password change for DB user used for TRAPS.

Hi Team,


I have figured out the changes needed to be done in the server having core and console installed.

  1. Need to update the new password in the Log On tab on "Endpoint Security Manager" service
  2. Need to update account credentials in ESMAppPool under IIS manager -> Application pools.

these configuration steps helped me to get the TRAPS in action after service account password change.
