-password text
Where text is the clear-text value of the real password. When you specify the -password option alone, the tool displays a string of characters that represent the encrypted password value. You can then use this value directly to manually specify a required password as a property or command-line parameter value when manually configuring an OpenEdge client or server.
-verify encrypted-password
Where encrypted-password is the value of the encrypted password. When you specify the -verify option, the tool displays a message indicating if the real password and the encrypted password value match one another.
