Using the DBConfig Tool

The DBConfig tool allows users to change the user account, password, and the database name for the Control Manager database.

The tool offers the following options:

  • DBName: Database name

  • DBAccount: Database account

  • DBPassword: Database password

  • Mode: Database's authentication mode (SQL or Windows authentication)

Note:

The default mode is SQL authentication mode, however Windows authentication mode is necessary when configuring for Windows authentication.

  1. From the Control Manager server, click Start > Run.
  2. Type cmd, and then click OK.

    The command prompt screen appears.

  3. Change the directory to the Control Manager root directory (for example, <root>\Program Files\Trend Micro\Control Manager\DBConfig).
  4. Type dbconfig.

    The DBConfig tool interface appears.

  5. Specify which settings you want to modify:
    • Example 1: DBConfig -DBName="db_your_database>" -DBAccount="sqlAct" -DBPassword="sqlPwd" -Mode="SQL"

    • Example 2: DBConfig -DBName="db_your_database>" -DBAccount="winAct" -DBPassword="winPwd" -Mode="WA"

    • Example 3: DBConfig -DBName="db_your_database>" - DBPassword="sqlPwd"
