Hi,
I am trying to use websphere in 'Local OS' security mode where websphere gets the users information from Local OS. (I don't want to have my own Custom registry)
My application needs to get the list of users and groups, I have found that there is a class 'UserRegistryImpl' used by websphere which gets this in a OS independent manner, is there a documentation or any information of any kind on how it can be used?

The documentation seems pretty poor. All I wanted was to require user authentication on the Admin console as my apps are secured behind Tivoli. When I tried to do the LocalOS registry I could not get it to work. I called IBM support and they told me that the id and password have to be the same as any user/password on the server that is part of the Administrators group. So I did this and then set up a user under console users for this user and enabled global security. This time when I hit apply from the global security page it seemed to work as it didn't give me an error message and prompted me to save the configuration. Then I restarted the server as I was told. I went back into the console and was given a user field and password field. However, when I filled these out correctly and hit the OK button, it would hit the server but then bring me back to the login page. If I entered and invalid user and password it would give me the correct error message. Any help on this subject would be greatly appreciated.
