Tivoli Storage Manager server does not start after password change

Technote (troubleshooting)


A Tivoli Storage Manager server instance service configured to run under a specific Windows account userid fails to start after the account password is changed.


In this example, the Tivoli Storage Manager server instance, Server1, is configured to run with the "tsmadmin" Windows account userid. The Windows password for the "tsmadmin" Windows account is changed. The password is then changed in the "Log On" tab of the "TSM Server1" service. Following this, the server instance fails to start as a service. The server also fails to start in the foreground with the following error messages :

Password not updated for DB2 service.

Resolving the problem

When a Tivoli Storage Manager server instance is configured to run under a specific Windows account userid and the Windows account password is changed, it is necessary to update both the Tivoli Storage Manager instance service and the DB2 service. For example, when the server instance is Server1, it is necessary to update the password of the account under the "Log On" tab of the following two services :

  • TSM Server1
  • DB2 - DB2TSM1 - SERVER1

In this case, the password for the "TSM Server1" service was updated but the password for the "DB2 - DB2TSM1 - SERVER1" service was not updated.
