The JBoss ON server connects to its database instance as a database user. It does this automatically, using the credentials given in its
rhq-server.properties file. The database password is encoded automatically by the installer before it is stored in the
rhq-server.properties file, to provide some extra protection against unauthorized access to the database password.
It's possible that the password for that database user account is changed. This change always occurs at the database, not in JBoss ON, so the password in the
rhq-server.properties file has to be manually encoded and updated for JBoss ON to continue to function.

JBoss ON stores its database password in an encoded form in the
rhq-server-properties file. Therefore, the new database has to be properly encoded before it's added to the
rhq-server-properties file so that the server reads it correctly.
