| Subj: || || Known issues with changing Teradata System |
| From: || || Clark, Dave |
We have customers that are interested in "hardening" the security of their sites which includes changing the default passwords for system
accounts. If your site has already done this, do you recall any impact to any utilities or scripts? Scripts that come to mind include:
cc_check, dumplook, perflook. I've listed the known system accounts below.
DatabaseName OK to Change?
$NETVAULT_CATALOG NA - Database
CONSOLE NA - Database
DBCMNGR NA - Database
EXTUSER NA - Pseudo User
SPOOLRESERVE NA - Database or possibly customer specific
TDPUSER * User can be dropped if no mainframe connection.
