    You can either delete the password protecting access to the Configuration Panel, then proceed with the update, or perform the update in the command line using the TGBCONF_ADMINPASSWORD property (refer to the “Deployment Guide”).

NOTE

The way an update is carried out can be customized by a series of command-line options or an initialization file.

These options are described in the document entitled “Deployment Guide”.
