    yes it is possible. It is better to open a support case when you plan to change the dbadmin password.

    Hi Sruthia, but I don't want to change the password of the dbadmin, the password to which I refer is the one of the DB that is the one that asks us when we stop and start the DB, I don't know if I understand. In my case I have a different password for the dbadmin and another one for the DB.

    Thanks Sruthia, I'm beginner in Vertica you're right. I tested it in my lab, changing the pass to the user dbadmin and it is the same password with which I start the DB.
