Description Charles Crouch 2010-03-25 21:44:14 UTC
Right now we store the password the RHQ Server uses to connect its database in clear text in rhq-server.properties. We should move to obfuscate this using the standard process for jboss as datasources.

Things to do:
-Do the development for this change for both new and upgrading users
-Doc this change, and any impact on people upgrading from unobfuscated to obfuscated versions
-QE new and upgraded servers, plus test the scripts for when the db password changes and a user has to update the password after install.
