Can the default SA account be changed for the IEM Administration Tool?

Technote (FAQ)


Question

My question regarding the IBM Endpoint Manager Administration Tool. By default when running the Administration Tool, BigFix automatic defaults to the "SA" account and it's grayed out so no way to change it. The DB administrator is required to disable the SA account. I am wondering if there is a way to change the Administration Tool from pointing to the SA account and assign it another account?

Answer

HKCU\Software\BigFix\BFEAdmin\Settings
"AllowCustomUsername"[DWORD]
If non-0, user can type in the database username they wish to use instead of ‘sa’
Note: This setting is actually BFEAdmin\Settings\AllowCustomUsername.
