3155260 - The maint user password is not updated even if hide_maintuser_pwd is enabled - SRS


  • The maintenance user password automatic changing feature will work if you enable the following parameters on the SAP Replication Server
    • hide_maintuser_pwd
    • maintuser_pwd_expiration
  • However, if a DSI connection encounters some connection error at startup, the password is no longer updated.(rs_maintuser table is not updated.)
  • For example, when restarting the Replication Server, automatic password change no longer works after connection error if the target RDB ASE is offline.
