How to change SRM DB password

The issue:

You need to change or already did change your database password that site recovery manager is using. In my case someone change the password and didn’t update it in SRM so the service wouldn’t start anymore.

The Fix:

  1. open cmd
  2. navigate to your SRM install directory and then the bin folder
  3. installcreds.exe -key db:databasename -u databaseuserid
  4. enter your new password
