Environment

McAfee ePolicy Orchestrator (ePO) 5.x

Problem

You are unable to log on to the ePO console.

Problem

The ePO log on screen displays the following:

Log on to McAfee Foundation Services

When this error displays, the language cannot be selected.

Problem

The orion.log records the following error: 

ERROR: [com.mcafee.orion.core.db.base.Database]: Constructor threw exception; nested exception is java.sql.SQLException: Login failed. The login is from an untrusted domain and cannot be used with Windows authentication. 
CommonEvents - Dependency ComputerMgmt had initialization error

System Change

The password of the account that is used to connect ePO to SQL has been changed.

Cause

The password was not changed in the ePO Database Settings page.

Solution

On the ePO Database Settings page, change the database account information:
  1. Log on to the ePO Database Settings page: https://localhost:8443/core/config-auth, where 8443 is the ePO console port.
  2. Type the password of the account you are using to connect to SQL in the User password field.
  3. Retype the password in the Confirm password field.
  4. Click Test Connection to verify the new password connection to the SQL database.
  5. Click Apply and close the Database Settings page.

Solution

If you cannot log on to the Database Settings page because you are using a remote console, do the following:
  1. Change the password of the account back to the previous one used to connect to SQL.
  2. Log on to the ePO Database Settings page: https://localhost:8443/core/config-auth, where 8443 is the ePO console port.
  3. Type the password of the account you are using to connect to SQL in the User password field.
  4. Retype this password in the Confirm password field.
  5. Click Test Connection to verify the new password connection to the SQL database.
  6. Click Apply and close the Database Settings page.

Solution

If you are unable to open the Database Settings page because of invalid credentials on the https://localhost:8443/core/config-auth page, do the following:
