You can change the password on a single ASE node and propagate the change to other nodes in the ASE cluster. To do this, you need to copy the /data directory of the ASE node on which the password has been modified to the other nodes in the cluster.


The file in the ASE /data directory stores the password information, and also the universally unique identifier ( UUID ) of the ASE node. It is important to delete the UUID of the ASE node with modified password before copying its /data directory to the other nodes in the cluster. This avoids cluster synchronization issues due to duplicate UUIDs.

Follow these steps to propogate the changed password to all the nodes in an ASE cluster:

  1. Change the password for the ASE node. For more information, see Change Admin password.
  2. Stop the ASE node by following the instructions explained in Stop ASE.
  3. Run the delete-uuid script.
    /opt/pingidentity/ase# ./util/delete-uuid
    Deleting uuid  02cdf7b3-dfb7-4d5b-b9a1-171e89664d11
  4. Verify the successful deletion of UUID by re-executing the delete-uuid script.
    /opt/pingidentity/ase# ./util/delete-uuid
    uuid does not exist in database
  5. Copy the /data directory to other nodes in the cluster.
