Subject [jira] Commented: (GERONIMO-4296) Start Derby NetworkServerControl with credentials to prevent unauthorized shutdowns
Date Thu, 17 Dec 2009 04:58:18 GMT


Han Hong Fang commented on GERONIMO-4296:

Here is the default derby user information. 

User: dbadim 
Password: manager 
Group: derbyadmin 

This user is used by Geronimo modules when operating with Derby. The user name and group name
of default derby user can NOT be changed, but the default password can with following steps.

1. Start Geronimo server
2. Change password of dbadmin in console >security > Users and Groups portlet 
3. Change the user password in existing datasources in console > Services > Database
pools portlet 
4. Shutdown Geronimo server 
5. Change the userPassword attribute of DerbyNetwork GBean in var\config\config.xml 
6. Restart Geronimo server

> Use the new NetworkServerControl support in Derby and later to start our embedded
Derby server with credentials, to prevent any other apps on localhost from stopping our Derby
instance.  The following Derby release note details the scenario and the new API -
> We could either use random uid/pwd values to start the Derby server, which would be the
most secure, but would keep other apps from using our Derby server.  The other option, would
be to set uid/pwd GBean attributes and default the to the default system/manager values and
leave it up to the user to change them.
> Note:  This may also require some Samples, Testsuite and Portlet chagnes to handle the
required DB auth.
