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.
    Note: An administrator can use the MetasysSQLServer tab to customize the random passwords created at install time for the SQL named accounts which Metasys uses.
    Note: An administrator can use the MetasysRabbitMQ tab to customize the random passwords created at install time for the RabbitMQ Message bus which Metasys uses for on-box inter-process messaging.
    Note: From Metasys Release 11.0, an administrator can use the tab for Trusted Peer Mode to customize the random passwords created at install time for on-box inter-Micros Service communication. These are credentials which can be used to retrieve an access token from the authentication service by a micro-service so that it may perform requests against another micro-service’s public APIs. These requests are trusted because they do not represent a Metasys user but have the ability to make any public API call.
  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. 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.
