Riva connections to a CRM are configured with the credentials (user names and passwords) of the "Riva connection account" that has the necessary permissions to impersonate into the target user CRM account. Riva does not dynamically change the password for the Riva connection account if the CRM password for that account is changed.
If the CRM password for the Riva connection account is changed, the Riva administrator needs to change the password for the corresponding Riva connection to the CRM. If the password is not changed, the CRM Monitor reports this error: Invalid login: Login attempt failed. Please check the user name and password.
