A new Metasys installation creates the predefined SQL Server login accounts and passwords described in SQL Server Login Accounts. The passwords for the SQL Server login accounts are randomly generated and encrypted, to ensure the highest level of security. End users can gain access through various user interfaces and Metasys processes for intercommunication. The end user accounts are described in detail in this document and in Network and IT Guidance for the IT Professional Technical Bulletin (LIT-1201578). This document describes the Metasys SQL Server accounts and management of these accounts using the Database Connection Configuration Tool (DBCCT), DBConnectionConfigurationTool.exe. For security reasons, we strongly recommend changing the default passwords after installing the Metasys software.
Note: This document does not apply to SCT, which uses virtual service accounts and Windows authenticated authorization.
