The existing processing uses a file called config.bat that contains the password for sadmin, we feel having an unencrypted password, in a text file, is an unacceptable security risk. I will provide a summary of the steps current used in our EIM processing to better describe our problem. Is there a way to keep the automated processing and secure the password of sadmin.

1) Using our desk-top computers we use Terminal Services to log on to the machine where the Siebel server is located.

2) Within Terminal Services, we navigate to a shared folder and execute a file called processing.bat. First the file executes a file called config.bat which sets session variables most importantly the following:
    set SiebelStr=/g <server> /e Siebel_test /s <server> /u sadmin /p <password>
3) Processing.bat then launches several sql files to which populates the EIM tables.

4) Next processing.bat executes the follows command:
    %SHomeStr%\siebsrvr\bin\srvrmgr %SiebelStr% /c "run task for component EIM server %EIMStr% with Config=%HomeStr%\DC\ifb\contacts.ifb,          batch=    110000-110999, Errorflags=1, sqlflags=8, Traceflags=8" /o ..\logs\run_eim_contacts.log
