ITCAM configuring password utilization with SYSADMIN user on TEP

Technote (FAQ)


Question

While configuring ITCAM for SOA and WebSphere DataPower Appliances, I am able to access Tivoli Enterprise Portal (TEP) using the default SYSADMIN user ID without the use of a passord. How to I enable TEP to require a password for the SYSADMIN user?

Cause

The SYSADMIN user ID is created by default to not require the use of a password.

Answer

The SYSADMIN ID is a special ID and the password used for it is the operating system password.

For setting and changing the password in Windows:

1. Reset the sysadmin password:
a. Open a command window.
b. Issue the following command:

    net user sysadmin new_password

For example, issue the following command:
    net user sysadmin Passw0rd

2. Ensure that the sysadmin user is not disabled. Sometimes the user is disabled because of too many logins.
a. Right-click My Computer
b. Select Manage > Local Users and Groups > Users > sysadmin
c. Verify that the account is not disabled.

3. Recycle (stop and then start) the Tivoli Enterprise Monitor Server agent and Tivoli Enterprise Portal Server agent from the Manage Tivoli Enterprise Monitoring Server:
a. Open the Manage Tivoli Enterprise Monitoring Server.
b. Select the Tivoli Enterprise Monitoring Server.
c. At the top of the window, select the recycle icon.
d. Select the Tivoli Enterprise Portal Server.
e. At the top of the window, select the recycle icon.

For setting and changing the password in Unix:

1. Add SYSADMIN as a UNIX ID by issuing the following command:
    useradd sysadmin  

2. Specify a password for sysadmin by issuing the following command:
    passwd sysadmin

3. Recycle (stop and then start) the Tivoli Enterprise Monitor Server agent and Tivoli Enterprise Portal Server agent from the Manage Tivoli Enterprise Monitoring Server:
a. Open the Manage Tivoli Enterprise Monitoring Server.
b. Select the Tivoli Enterprise Monitoring Server.
c. At the top of the window, select the recycle icon.
d. Select the Tivoli Enterprise Portal Server.
e. At the top of the window, select the recycle icon.

To require SYSADMIN to enter a password at TEP login:

1. Navigate to the Manage Tivoli Enterprise Monitoring Services - TEMS Mode window
2. Right click on Tivoli Enterprise Monitoring Server
3. Select Reconfigure from the drop down list
4. Select the Security: Validate User check box
5. Select okay button for this window and at the Hub TEMS Configuration window which pops up.
6. Select yes to restart Tivoli Enterprise Monitoring Server.
