Bug 42381


GemStone/S 64 Bit


All platforms

Incorrect handling of upgrade of user passwords

The upgrade process from earlier versions to v3.1 does not correctly handle
the upgrade of passwords for user accounts.  As a result, upgrading production
systems to v3.1 requires extra steps to ensure password security of user

Special system accounts such as SystemUser and DataCurator are not impacted.

New databases originating in 3.1 (that is, repositories that are not upgraded)
are not affected.


If you are planning to upgrade to 3.1 soon, contact GemStone Technical
Support for additional information.

Version, with a fix for this problem, will be released soon.
