Resolving the problem

To resolve the problem, perform the following steps as the Db2 Big SQL console user (the default user is conuser).
  1. In a command-line interface, go to the /usr/ibmpacks/bigsql-uc/ directory.
  2. Run ./crypt.sh <Db2 Big SQL console user password>.

    The crypt.sh utility encrypts the password that you enter.

  3. Edit the /usr/ibmpacks/bigsql-uc/ file.
  4. In the password field, type the encrypted password.
  5. Save the file.
  6. In Cloudera Manager, restart the Db2 Big SQL console.
