Password validation failed in Quality Center 10

Hi,

I am getting the password validation failed message while installtion Qualirt Center 10.

Error Message:
Caused by: java.sql.SQLException: [Mercury][SQLServer JDBC Driver][SQLServer]Password validation failed. The password does not meet Windows policy requirements because it is not complex enough.

I also tried creating td user manually with default password as 9.2 verion (tdtdtd), even that didn't worked.

Error message:
com.mercury.install.interfaces.ConfigException: com.mercury.optane.core.CTdException:
[Mercury][SQLServer JDBC Driver][SQLServer]Login failed for user 'td'.


Any idea what's the new password in Quality Center 10.

Quick reply will be really appreciate...

Re: Password validation failed in Quality Center 10

Did you turn off the password policy check in SQL Server when you created the user TD

"In SqlServer2005 I created a new login [td] with CHECK_POLICY = OFF"

Re: Password validation failed in Quality Center 10

Thanks for your quick reply, but our DBA is not ready to change the the SQL password policy.

They are ready to create the td account manually, but for that I need the password in QC10. It's not same as in QC 9.2

Re: Password validation failed in Quality Center 10

Is this SQL SP2..??..

If the default password is changed in QC 10.0....I think its difficult to get it.!


tdtdtd password was disclosed to public by R&D after several issues :)

Shivaram, with all due respect nothing good will come from posting passwords in public forums even if you put smiley faces at the end.

Re: Password validation failed in Quality Center 10

I am able to solve the problem with below steps:

1. Start the installation of QC once again.

2. Follow the installation wizard. Come to the screen where it asks for the database details.

3. Give the database name, the DB Admin username and corresponding password. Also click on Show Advanced Options.

4. Here you have a QC User Password, which is filled by default during the installation. Change this password from tdtdtd (the default password already entered) to something more complex like welcome*1 or something.

5. Continue the installation process and it will complete successfully.
