password db2admin is invalid while installing db2 under Windows 7

I've got a LapTop with pre-installed Windows 7. Now I'm getting the message "invalid user password" while installing DB2 and giving the standard "db2admin" standard password for "db2admin" user. As far as I understand, the user db2admin is normally created during DB2 installation and the password "db2admin" that I'm giving for this user, doesn't goes through user password validation of Windows 7
Is there a way to turn off or to change the validation of the user password under Windows 7? If yes, how can I do it?

Thanx in advance,

jvo

Hi inversojvo,

By default, DB2 defers user authentication to the underlying operating system.

The easiest solution is to change the password to 'db2admin' to be something that you know.

2Kdo: where can I see the password validation rules? I'm trying to give "Defaultuseruser1" as password, and still getting the same messages, that the password is invalid.

You'd change the password as a Windows administrator, or the db2admin user.

How are you trying to connect?

The db2admin id probably already exists on your PC.  My recommendations are:

1) Go to Control Panel...Users  and find the db2admin id and change it's password - then try to reinstall DB2.  (I don't advise using this solution.  I've had problems before trying to use this solution when installing DB2 V9 on a Windows PC.)

2) Use a different id OTHER THAN db2admin - either yours OR preferably a brand new id that does not exist on the PC.

I've managed to give another password, but I couldn't find where the password validation rules are managed, that I've asked for.
