Description:

If nsmadmin password has changed, you will need to edit the database.properties file to set the new password that Portal will use to access the database.

Solution:

Change database.password.encoded=1 to
database.password.encoded=0
Then change database.password=<encoded password>
to database.password=<enter in your new password>

Save the file.
Start up the Portal service in the NT Services window.
