  • You can try:

    nbdb_admin -dba <new passwd>

    Based on the status 2 issue, I'm wondering if your vxdbms.conf file has been corrupted.

    If NBU is running, you can browse a catalog backup like a normal back by changing the policy type to nbu-catalog in the BAR gui, you could then restore the vxdbms.conf file, from a time you know it was working.
