    You need to set the password on OS level on the db server (in the user menagement of the OS)

    To synch the password used by the java stack for sap<sid>db, you have to

    set it in the config tool -> secure store informations.



    See SAP note 997510 for further details.

      Is this your production server?

      DB2 user password change is not easy even if you find out the os user id.

      Cannot connect from configtool unless you have working user id and password.

      So, if it is not a production server, un-expire all user password from OS

      The password policy from OS make it expired.
