Subject [jira] [Commented] (DERBY-5648) Unclear password expiry warning when using separate credentials db
Date Mon, 12 Mar 2012 15:36:37 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/DERBY-5648?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=13227612#comment-13227612

Knut Anders Hatlen commented on DERBY-5648:

Option 2 sounds fine to me.

Another question is whether there should have been an error when calling SYSCS_MODIFY_PASSWORD
on a database that's not a credentials database. But I suppose that must be allowed so that
the password of the DBO can be set before NATIVE is enabled? Maybe SYSCS_MODIFY_PASSWORD (and
SYSCS_RESET_PASSWORD) should fail, though, if there is no entry for the specified user in
the local SYS.SYSUSERS table?

> If you log on to a database (other than the credentials db) and your password is about
to expire, you'll be advised to change your password using the SYSCS_UTIL.SYSCS_MODIFY_PASSWORD
procedure. However, the warning message does not say you need to log on to the credentials
db to change your password. This may lead the user to modify the password in the current database
instead of the credentials database, thinking everything is well.
> ij(CONNECTION1)> connect 'jdbc:derby:otherdb;user=test;password=abc';
> WARNING 01J15: Your password will expire in 0 day(s). Please use the SYSCS_UTIL.SYSCS_MODIFY_PASSWORD
 procedure to change your password.
> 0 rows inserted/updated/deleted
> ij(CONNECTION2)> connect 'jdbc:derby:otherdb;user=test;password=new-password';
> ERROR 08004: Connection authentication failure occurred.  Reason: Invalid authentication..
> Even though SYSCS_MODIFY_PASSWORD succeeds, the password has not been updated in the
credentials db.
