CAROOT Password????????

CAROOT Password????????

CAROOT Password????????

I don't know my caroot password.  Can anyone tell me how I can the password to run my backup.  I am running version 9.
Thanks in advance.

RE: CAROOT Password????????


You can reset the password for CAROOT by running the following command from the home directory of brightstorarcservebackup....

* authsetup /p "newpassword"

RE: CAROOT Password????????

I have tried to change caroot password, but get returned error: Authsetup: Error opening domain service initialization event

Any idea's how to get around this password change? Or, do you know the default password for caroot?

RE: CAROOT Password????????

The ARCserve Domain Service must be running.

RE: CAROOT Password????????

I have done the above steps and I still cannot reset this password. I am logged on to the domain as administrator.

C:\Program Files\CA\BrightStor ARCserve Backup>authsetup /p "manager"
AuthSetup : Initializing the authentication database
AuthSetup : Password =******()
AuthSetup : Domain services are running.
AuthSetup : Authentication services are running.
AuthSetup (421): Connect to Domain server. (iter=1).
AuthSetup (444): Connect to authentication server==FUJISAWA_BSRV (iter=1).
AuthSetup (538): ca_auth -equiv <localNTaccount> =235 failed ... reason : No per
mission for this operation

AuthSetup (557): ca_auth -equiv <localNTaccount> =235 failed ... reason : No per
mission for this operation

AuthSetup : Terminating (No Permission/Invalid password)

RE: CAROOT Password????????


1. Stop ALL ARcserve services are running.
2. Rename the folder named <server_name> under  
Drive:\Program Files\CA\BrightStor ARCserve Backup\data\discovery
3. Restart ALL Arcserve services. - This should recreate  
   the folder
4. Open a DOS window and CD into the ARCserve folder
5. Type "ca-qmgr -list" - this would prompt you to
   establish an equivalence if none exists.. type "Y"
6. authsetup /p "" - to blank out the caroot pwd.

Hope this helps..
