The Developer's Guide falsely claims that you can use SYSCS_UTIL.SYSCS_SET_DATABASE_PROPERTY to change the boot password on an encrypted database.

    Description

      This claim is made in the section titled 'Changing the boot password'. If you try to run the example, you get this error:

      CALL SYSCS_UTIL.SYSCS_SET_DATABASE_PROPERTY( 'bootPassword', 'Thursday' , 'Saturday');
      ERROR 42Y03: 'SYSCS_UTIL.SYSCS_SET_DATABASE_PROPERTY' is not recognized as a function or procedure.

      The correct way to change the boot password is documented earlier on in the section titled 'Encrypting databases with a new boot password'. We should remove the section titled 'Changing the boot password'.
