When you change a password, encrypt it before entering it in the agentparm.txt file. To encrypt a password, use the Password utility that is provided with the agent.
The agent handles FTP user IDs and passwords separately.
Follow these steps:
  1. (i5/OS systems only) Open a PASE terminal session.
  2. Change to the agent installation directory, and enter the following command at the command prompt:
    • On UNIX:
      password
    • On Windows:
      password.bat
    • On i5/OS
      password
    • On HP Integrity NonStop
      ./password
  3. Enter your password at the password prompt.
    The utility responds with your encrypted password as in the following example:
    **** PASSWORD ENCRYPTION **** Enter your password: Lisa Encrypted password: 1FF8897FCDDF8A62
  4. Make note of the encrypted password as you will need to enter it in the agentparm.txt file.
  5. Exit the utility.
