Enabling user password restriction for Object Server authentication

Technote (FAQ)


Question

How to enable password value restriction for Web GUI user authentication method configured against ObjectServer?

Answer

Enable the following properties on the connecting ObjectServer.

RestrictPasswords - default value is FALSE

PasswordFormat - default value is 8:1:1:0

Above properties can be enabled via:

a. Netcool/Omnibus Administrator Console

b. Directly editing the connecting ObjectServer property file located in $OMNIHOME/etc/<objectserver>.props

Restart both the WebGUI and ObjectServer once above changes are made.

NOTE: Password value restriction for users configured to authenticate against ObjectServer will only be fully enforced when BOTH properties are enabled.
