Trying to setup Ambari server on non default MySQL database

Got following error for database account password:

Enter Database Password:

Invalid characters in password. Use only alphanumeric or _ or - characters

p.p1 {margin: 0.0px 0.0px 0.0px 0.0px; font: 11.0px Calibri} p.p2 {margin: 0.0px 0.0px 0.0px 0.0px; font: 11.0px Calibri; min-height: 13.0px} span.s1 {font-kerning: none}

service account password created based on company’s password policy with special characters

Is there any way to avoid this password restriction and complete our Ambari server setup

@dbaez

Can you provide some accepted password at "Enter Database Password:" and then try to edit /etc/ambari-server/password.dat file and provide correct password. I am not sure later ambari gives some other issues after that point. May be you can try this and let me know

Can you use the browser's inspector (Chrome Debugger or Firebug) to edit the text area's value?
