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
     ALL                 N
     CONSOLE             NA - Database
     CRASHDUMPS          Y
     DBC                 Y
     DBCMANAGER          Y
     DBCMNGR             NA - Database
     DEFAULT             N
     EXTUSER             NA - Pseudo User
     NETVAULT1           Y
     NETVAULT2           Y
     PUBLIC              N
     SPOOLRESERVE        NA - Database or possibly customer specific
     SYSADMIN            Y
     SYSDBA              Y
     SYSTEMFE            Y
     SYS_CALENDAR        N
     TDPUSER             *    User can be dropped if no mainframe connection.
     TDWM                Y
