The PingAccess configuration database is protected by randomly-generated passwords on startup. You can rotate these passwords for additional security.

  1. Open a terminal window and change to the <PA_HOME>/bin directory.
  2. To ensure the JAVA_HOME environment variable is set correctly, enter the command echo $JAVA_HOME.
  3. To ensure the proper Java executable is in your path, enter the command java -version.

    If this command returns a value indicating that the Java executable is not a supported version, correct this issue before continuing.

  4. Stop PingAccess.
  5. Run the appropriate rotation script for your environment.
