    1. SQLAuthentcation provider stores users and password in Database. So you need to import and export the database.

  1. Can the DefaultAuthenticator.dat be edited the re-imported? I would like to change a large number of passwords, but I don’t want to do this through the console. Can I change the password in the export file then re-import the data back into the security realm so that the new passwords are reflected?
