Oracle VM 3: How to change the password for Oracle VM Manager MySQL database (Doc ID 2073368.1)

Last updated on FEBRUARY 27, 2017

Applies to:

Oracle VM - Version 3.2.1 to 3.3.4 [Release OVM32 to OVM33]
Linux x86-64

Goal

Normally, the passwords for the various components such as the Oracle VM Manager, the WebLogic Server and MySQL database are all set using the same password during the initial install of Oracle VM Manager; it is unusual for passwords to be different.  However, there are times when customers want to change the MySQL password or they have forgotten the password for MySQL and want to reset it.  

The password that the Oracle VM Manager uses to connect to the MySQL database must also be changed in conjunction with the password change for MySQL.

This note explains how to change the database password in Oracle VM Manager as well as the MySQL database so they both match.
