You can use the Administration Tools to connect to a database from any node within the database while logged in to any user account with access privileges.

  1. On the Main Menu, click Connect to Database, and then click OK.

  2. Supply the database password if asked:


    When you create a new user with the CREATE USER command, you can configure the password or leave it empty. You cannot bypass the password if the user was created with a password configured. You can change a user's password using the ALTER USER command.

    The Administration Tools connect to the database and transfer control to vsql.
