Introduction:
While trying to shutdown the Vertica database, it is requesting the password. However, I do not remember what the password was set to during the installation. Is there a way to find the Vertica password after installing?
Instructions:
The vertica password can be found in the drinstall.properties file under the DbPwd parameter. 

Reference the following from the "Install the Data Repository" section of the docs located at https://docops.ca.com/ca-performance-management/3-6/en/installing/install-the-data-repository 

DbPwd=The database password 
Default: dbpass 

NOTE: The database password that you define here is used during the installation of the Data Aggregator. You can use special characters (except for single quotation marks) in passwords. To use special characters, encase the password with single quotation marks (for example, DbPwd='test$tr|ng'). If the DbPwd property is not found or blank, the script prompts for this information at runtime.
