Credential Manager loses the password stored after a certain time

Hey Microsoft Community.

I have a small problem with the Manager of credentials Windows under Windows 7, Windows 8 RP, RTM of Windows 8 (have a version of Dreamsparks) and Windows Home Server 2011. When I store connections in the manager like for example to connect to network between machines shares, the manager loses these passwords after a certain time (2-3 days or more). At first I thought that this happens when the computer is rebooted or started because the machines are usually have hibernated in my house - but even when they are not given running loose connections.

What should I do to fix this? I need the connections, for example for automatic nightly backups.

  • Version 38.0.1 does not see the passwords stored in previous versions

    Version 38.0.1 does not see the previously saved passwords, and urged it to re - enter and save the password. After revert you to the version saved 31.7.0 pass back too. We have more than hundreds of copies of the program and all cached passwords, users do not even know what their password. This failure is a serious problem.

    Problem solved. Probably the file has been corrupted signons3.txt. I deleted the file, and the new passwords are kept. After this version of the software update and new version I've seen passwords, create a logins.json file and now everything is fine. On all other computers in the company such a problem does not arise.

  • Where are the passwords stored on my hard drive, can I access, change them

    Where passwords are stored on my hard drive / folder, then I go in and change them. Can I add password to this file / folder.

    Passwords are stored in signons.sqlite in the profile folder. They will be encrypted so can not be displayed. You can use saved password editor add-on to create and edit entries in the password manager.

  • That must make the password stored in the JAGENT portfolio, and what JAVA_HOME should I use for the command?

    I configure the GoldenGate Plugin for OEM. There is a step to create the portfolio. The documentation is not clear on the role of the provided password. If I run the JAGENT as user oracle, it must match the password for the oracle user, or is this separate password? Also, should I use the jdk to OEM agent to set JAVA_HOME?

    ./ - jagentonly


    Morning.  Good to see that someone is working on the use of the plug-in for GoldenGate in OEM12c.

    If you use the plugin, you will be much better with the preparation of reports on the processes of GoldenGate.  In order to get the plugin to work, the JAgent is necessary and can be downloaded in the distribution of the Oracle GoldenGate monitor (Agent Monitor configuration Oracle #GoldenGate |) DBASolved).  If you use the old plug-in, the JAgent is integrated with the GoldenGate Software (Oracle GoldenGAte( and later) and Oracle Enterprise Manager 12 c |) DBASolved).  I recommend you take the new plug-in!

    Now to the address that ask you the password. The password is stored in the portfolio under the House of GoldenGate ($OGG_HOME/dirwlt) and is used directly for the JAgent to connect to the EMAgent and connect with OEM.  The password associated with user name is configured in the $JAGENT_HOME (different depending on version, look for the  Then in OEM, the user name defined in the and the password in the portfolio must be provided before OEM GoldenGate targets will come.

    The $JAVA_HOME parameter is dependent on the version of JAgent you want to run.  The JAgent to using the JDK 1.7 or higher.  The JAgent shipped using JDK 1.6.

  • Vista 32 bit loses the internet connection after about 10-15 minutes.

    I lose my internet connection after 10-15 minutes.

    The message says local access only.

    The only way to reconnect is to restart the computer.

    I use a devolo home plug network system. It is connected to a 210 of BT router travel.

    I also have a new computer recently bought and installed Windows 7. There is no problem with that.

    Maybe it's a coincidence, but the problem started only since the installation of the new model.

    Hello Cody C.

    Thanks for your reply. I tried this. It is said that the drivers are up to date.

    I go into the settings of power network and checked the box "turn off network card to save energy.

    Since that seems to be OK. Only time will tell if.

  • My watch keeps the password locking after the iOS2.1

    My watch used only need the password when I put in the morning.

    He would know that there on my wrist for the rest of the day, as it should.

    Since the upgrade to Watch OS 2.1 it continually needs unlock code while remaining on my wrist.

    Today alone I unlock it about 20 times.

    Apple support suggested turning off wrist recognition but which would disable ApplePay and health monitoring features.

    Help? Suggestions?

    Hi Adam

    If your watch has a hardware failure, it may be eligible for the warranty (subject to the usual warranty).

    Apple support to help determine if your watch should be checked under the guarantee, it may be prudent to follow their recommended troubleshooting steps (which may include disabling and re-enabling wrist detection and access code), and supported the continuation of your record of taking.
