Hi,

We are attempting to backup the GWS database (Windows Server, GMS 2.03) using the dobackup.cmd file. This batch file requires a login ID and password. We know the UIN but it we do not know the password (the failure log reports that either the login ID or password is incorrect). so I was considering changing the password.

Does anyone know if changing that password from within the Intellisync Admin Console will cause problems?

PS. I've attached a copy of the dobackup.cmd file just in case I have overlooked something. The password has been replaced with PASSWORD.
