The Application Service Password can be fixed by editing one of the startup scripts. On Windows you can edit the EmailStart.bat file and on Unix you can edit the emaild.sh script. Note: Do not start the script, since it does not execute the EmailStart.bat file.
In these files append the following statement to the end of the line that starts the Email Daemon:
-s <ar_system_server_name> -p <application_service_password>
Execute the script, which will update the system with the correct password by applying the changes to the EmailDaemon.properties file. Then edit the script again, and remove this addition and restart your system.
Another way, you can also remove the Application Service Password, DSO Local Password and Mid-Tier-Service-Password through the User Tool under Server Information --> Connection Setting Tab.
In the EmailDaemon.properties file, located in the Email Daemon installation directory, change:
This removes the password completely and allows the Email Daemon to connect to the AR System Server with no errors.
Thanks for the reply. Would you happen to know how to change the other passwords mentioned above without using the remedy user tool? Specifically the ARAdmin DB Password? I know I can change the ARAdmin DB password through oracle, but then my problem would be encrypting that password in ar.conf.
