    Just a warning to upgraders

    When I upgraded our V15 SP1 to V15 SP2 our primary 'admin' login had all the special characters stripped out of it. In our case it was the = and [ characters. Made for quite some panicking, lots of blacklisting and almost a complete revert to backup.

    Hope this helps someone.

    Well dont know why. We never touch admin password. You can set it it up with special characters. Just tried ==[[aa and it works.

    That's right. It can be set back with the special characters again afterwards.

    I had typed the password just before upgrade, ran the upgrade and then the password was not working. Tried many combinations with very little hope and suddenly found it was the same password with two characters less. Went straight in and changed it back to the password it started as.
