Sometimes, you may need to change DBMS credentials, for example, in order to perform a credential rotation for security purposes.

To change DBMS credentials in a Windows environment by using klsrvswch.exe:

  1. Launch the klsrvswch utility that is located in the installation folder of Kaspersky Security Center. The default installation path: <Disk>:\Program Files (x86)\Kaspersky Lab\Kaspersky Security Center.

    You must launch the klsrvswch utility on the Administration Server device under the account with administrator rights that was used to install Administration Server.

  2. Click the Next button of the wizard until you reach the Change DBMS access credentials step.
  3. At the Change DBMS access credentials step of the wizard, perform the following:
    • Select the Apply new credentials option.
    • Specify a new account name in the Account field.
    • Specify a new password for an account in the Password field.
    • Specify the new password in the Confirm password field.

    You should specify credentials of an account that exists in the DBMS.

  4. Click the Next button.

After the wizard finishes, the DBMS credentials are changed.
