About this task

The DBCCT is intended for use by administrators only. The ADS version of the tool only operates on the account used within selected tool location.

Note: On a split ADX, run DBCCT from the web server.

The tool is installed in the ADS path: <Metasys Web Site>\WS\bin\DBConnectionConfigurationtool.exe


  1. Browse to the tool location.
  2. Launch the tool.
    Figure 1. ADS DB Connection Parameters

  3. Change the passwords.
  4. Click OK.
    This saves all changes to the configuration files and affects all user names and passwords in the server. Reset restores all user names and passwords to their values at the time the tool opened. These values may be different form the installation defaults if DBCCT was previously run. Reset restores all user names and passwords. Cancel or X cancels all pending changes.
    Note: OK only saves the connection strings to the configuration file. The Metasys server web services running under IIS still cache the old connection values. You must manually reset IIS after closing the tool. This allows the web services to reload the new connection data.
  5. Confirm the change.
    After you confirm the change, a message appears indicating the configuration changes were successful.
  6. In SQL Server Management Studio, change the Security Logins passwords to match the server passwords.
