HI,
I have websphere 4.0.3 server running in my win2000. I first setup the admin username and password as OS authorization (that is same as my win2000 login), it works fine.
But a few days before I changed my desktop password because it is expired, and then I can't access websphere admin console because the password store in websphere is different from my desktop login.
What can I do?
Thanks.
David

You have to disable the security on your WebSphere manually.

1 - Stop the server
2 - in %WAS%/properties, delete sas.server.props.futur
3 - in %WAS%/properties, change sas.server.props
The line : com.ibm.CORBA.securityEnabled=false
If your repository is stored in DB2 (I guess it could depend on your was version, AE or AES), then modify the DB2 table *ejsadmin_securitycfg_table* :
connect to db2 and use :
db2 update ejsadmin.securitycfg_table set securityenabled=0
Restart the server. The security is desabled
You can now set the security again with the new password.
HTH

I can't find the file "sas.server.props.futur" in my AES 4.0.3. Also the line "com.ibm.CORBA.securityEnabled=false
" is commented out already in sas.server.props
I also check the server-cfg.xml, no such line.
Are you talking different version of websphere server?
Many thanks.
David

Just figure out:
In server-cfg.xml, change the "true" to false.
virtualHosts xmi:id="VirtualHost_2" name="admin_host">
<aliases xmi:id="HostAlias_5" hostname="*" port="9090"/>
</virtualHosts>
<security xmi:id="Security_1" cacheTimeout="30000" enabled="true" activeAuthMechanism="LocalOSAuthentication_1">
