VMware: Renewing the postgres-pgbouncer-secret

Renew the postgres-pgbouncer-secret that is used by the Management subsystem in an API Connect deployment.

Before you begin

Renewing the postgres-pgbouncer-secret on VMware uses the same steps as on Kubernetes, but you must SSH into the server first.


  1. SSH into the server:
    1. Run the following command to connect as the API Connect administrator, replacing ip_address with the appropriate IP address:
      ssh ip_address -l apicadm
    2. When prompted, select Yes to continue connecting.
    3. When you are connected, run the following command to receive the necessary permissions for working directly on the appliance:
      sudo -i
  2. Follow the instructions in Renewing the postgres-pgbouncer-secret.
