Need to change the nbdb password for all my domains (running 9.1.1). I used the 8.1 documentation last time when I set it during an upgrade to 8.1.1. I was just wondering if there is anything else (within NetBackup) which might be affected after the nbdb password change. I don't have any scripts querying the nbdb though.
Bonus question: can nbdb password change be done live while NetBackup is running? Is restart of NetBackup required?
Changing the password using the "nbdb_admin -dba <new pwd>" command will take care of everything that is normally required (you don't have anything querying the DB directly, so there shouldn't be anything else to be done).
The command takes care of updating the vxdbms.conf file with the new password.
I missed the bonus question. @Hamza_H is correct at a minimum the DB needs to be running (NB_dbsrv). It can most certainly be done while NetBackup is fully up and operational.
If you do change the DBA password, it will tell you you need to restart of the "NetBackup Web Management Console service".
