Patch 5 allows you to specify passwords for the tuning scripts in a text file. Previously, you could enter passwords only as a command-line argument, which could cause security issues. To use a password file, set the following variables, as needed, in the file:
For example, to tune Application Server 8:
# ./amtune-as8 password-file
where password-file contains AS_ADMIN_PASSWORD set to the Application Server 8 administrator password.
The tuning scripts use the -j password-file option when they call the ldapmodify, ldapsearch, db2index, and dsconf Directory Server utilities.
