Problem:

How do you remove the Versant database owner password?

Resolution:

While it is not necessary from an application point of view, you can have a password applied to your Versant database. If for some reason you need to remove this password, follow these steps:

1. Open Windows Explorer and navigate to the following folder: C:\Borland\CaliberRMServer\Versant\DB\SQMDB
2. In this folder is a file called pw, remove the file.
3. Restart the services using these steps in order from a cmd prompt:
     dbmgr -stop
     stopdb SQMDB
     startdb SQMDB
     dbmgr -start

The password should now be removed from the database.
