How to test or validate the superuser password of NPrinting to see if it's correct?

Hello,

We have a NPrinting server that was installed a few years ago by someone else.

We have a superuser password of NPrinting but are not sure whether it is correct.

Is there a way to test or validate the superuser password of NPrinting to see if it's correct?

Maybe something easy we can try to see if it's correct.

We could try backing up NPrinting site with it but that would mean bringing down the services for a while.

Hi,

If with "superuser password" you mean the password set during the installation, you can simply try to login. 

Best Regards,

If you are thinking about repository database password you may also try and do repository backup -https://help.qlik.com/en-US/nprinting/November2020/Content/NPrinting/DeployingQVNprinting/Backing-up... . Password which you will need to provide during this procedure need to be correct (given that you did not changed PostgreSQL settings).

and sorry - yes it means bringing the site down (as you mentioned), but on the other hand it is 30 seconds job to do... Just prepare commands in notepad beforehand or use scripts written by Daniel few years ago : https://community.qlik.com/t5/Qlik-NPrinting-Documents/Qlik-NPrinting-17-x-Repository-Backup-Batch-F...

Yes, to clarify it's the repository superuser password.

Is there any way to check it "works" without bringing down the environment? Something safe and relatively easy way perhaps.

Business wise we want to validate the password and try to do it without disrupting the services which is why I am asking seeking ideas this way.

I would install pgAdmin on nprinting server and would try to connect with it to repository database:

host:localhost

port:4992

user:postgres

database:nprinting

password: here put your password
