When I remove the password for TD sync .ini file I get a login error
* Product Name: StarTeam
* Product Version: 2008
* Product Component: TD Sync
* Platform/OS Version: All Supported OS
When you run the Synchronizer, the passwords are read from the .ini file - once you remove the passwords from the .ini file - you are unable to log into the TestDirector Synch
After running the Synchronizer, you can remove these passwords from the .ini file and comment out the directive (using #).
For example, you might begin with the following in the BugSync.ini file:
After the initial run of the Synchronizer, passwords.bin is created. You can then either remove the second line altogether or comment out the directive vts_password and remove or change the value; for example:
# vts_password=Password obfuscated
Note: The key here is either way you must comment out the directive. Removing just the password from the directive implies the password is the empty string - you must comment out the field.
