Encrypting passwords using the BMC Service Level Management Maintenance Tool

This procedure describes how to generate an encrypted password using the BMC Service Level Management Maintenance tool. You typically use an encrypted password when running a silent installation.

To encrypt a password

  1. Open the Maintenance Tool (See the section 'To open the Maintenance Tool' from the BMC Service Level Management online documentation).
  2. Click the Encrypt tab.
  3. Enter your password in the Password field and in the Confirm Password field.
  4. Click Encrypt.
  5. Copy and paste the encrypted password into the silent.txt file for your silent installer.

For example, if you want to encrypt the BMC Remedy AR System password and the output is DES\:b76c59dbc2e1433c7a9c2f006a2e2429116840dce695aea9, enter the following string:

-J BMC_AR_PASSWORD=DES\:b76c59dbc2e1433c7a9c2f006a2e2429116840dce695aea9

-J BMC_AR_CONFIRM_PASSWORD=DES\:b76c59dbc2e1433c7a9c2f006a2e2429116840dce695aea9
