Change Your Database Password in Visual SourceSafe
In this blog I am trying to explain how to change the
password of database in Visual SourceSafe.
Every Visual SourceSafe database user must have a user name
and a password so that database access can be controlled. When security for
your database is established, the database administrator registers your user
name and password. The administrator will set a temporary password for you and
notify you when the database is ready to use. You can then use the procedure
below to change the temporary password to a password of your choice.
To change the database password:
1. Log in to the database using the information provided by
your database administrator.
Visual SourceSafe Explorer, on the Tools menu, click Change Password.
the Password dialog box, enter the temporary password provided by the database
administrator in the Old password box.
your new password in the new password box. Your password can be up to 15 characters long, and can contain any characters.
the Verify box, re-enter the new password.
OK to register your new database password.
