usage: memsql-ops memsql-update-root-password [--settings-file SETTINGS_FILE] [--async] [--no-prompt] [-p [PASSWORD]] [--no-confirmation] [--force] [memsql_id] Update the root password for a MemSQL node. positional arguments: memsql_id The ID of the MemSQL node. optional arguments: --settings-file SETTINGS_FILE A path to a MemSQL Ops settings.conf file. If not set, we will use the file in the same directory as the MemSQL Ops binary. --async If this option is true, we will exit without waiting for MemSQL Ops to finish updating the root password. --no-prompt Skip interactive prompts if ID is not provided. This should be used for non-interactive scripts and automation. -p [PASSWORD], --password [PASSWORD] The password to use for the root user on the MemSQL node. Leave blank to read the MEMSQL_PASSWORD environment variable, or have a password prompt if MEMSQL_PASSWORD is not set. Note: empty string value clears the password for root. --no-confirmation If this option is specified, we will update the root password without prompting for confirmation. --force If this is true, we will set the password in MemSQL Ops even if we cannot currently connect to MemSQL.
When using MemSQL 6.7 and MemSQL Ops 6.0.11 or later, changing the
rootpassword is an online operation for both aggregators and leaves; otherwise, it should be considered an offline operation. See Configuring the root password for more information.
If you are running MemSQL Ops 6.0.10 or older and/or MemSQL 6.0 or older, see the previous version of this topic for additional instructions when running
