    On Oracle or SQL Server, the System Administrator can prevent unauthorized connections to the Admin schema by encrypting the Admin schema password using the Administration module option.  When encrypting the password, the software removes the Admin schema logon name and password from the Intools.ini file and stores this data in the database.  Therefore, if the password is encrypted, you cannot retrieve it automatically from the Intools.ini file but must enter it manually.  For more information, see Encrypt the Admin Schema Logon Password in the Administration Module help.
