Doc Type: Bug Fix
Doc Text:
Previously, setting up a PostgreSQL database with the engine-setup command generated weak passwords for PostgreSQL users. Since the PostgreSQL database is accessible remotely with a default Red Hat Enterprise Virtualization Manager installation, this was a security issue. With this update, stronger random passwords were generated and the password length has been extended to 22 characters.
