Bug 48885

Informational

GemStone/S 64 Bit

3.5.7, 3.5.6, 3.5.5, 3.5.4, 3.5.3, 3.5.2, 3.5.1, 3.5, 3.4.5, 3.4.4, 3.4.3, 3.4.2, 3.4.1, 3.4

topaz prompt for password not supported on login

In earlier releases, it was possible to skip the set password command in topaz, in which case the topaz login command would prompt you for the password.

To support other password authentication schemes, this particular sequence is no longer implemented, and results in a login error.

Workaround

Entering set password, but omitting the argument, will prompt for a password immediately (not on login). For example,

    topaz> set username DataCurator
    topaz> set password
    GemStone Password?
    <enter password>
    topaz> login
