Overview

This article describes how to override the password the player workers use to play transactions.

Environment

All WPM versions

Steps

  1. Stop the player service.
  2. Go to C:\program files(x86)\SolarWinds\Orion\SEUM\Player and locate SolarWinds.SEUM.Agent.Service.exe.config
  3. Edit the file and locate workerUserPasswordOverride="" and populate the password between the quotes.
  4. Save.
  5. In order for the player to leverage the new password, go to C:\ProgramData\SolarWinds\SEUM\Data
